Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 7 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 x 1, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia—a capsule orbiting Earth, the mission number, and the last names of crew members Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “Oct. 11, 1968” and numbered “210.” Normal condition, with some light tarnishing to reverse. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Pete Conrad, which reads, “This medallion, Serial No. 210, was carried aboard Apollo 7 by astronauts Wally Schirra, Walt Cunningham, and Donn Eisele in October of 1968. It has been in my personal collection since.” This was the very first Robbins Medal, designed for the Apollo 7 mission for Cunningham who wanted a special memento to take on the mission. The flown treasure proved so popular that every mission into space since has carried on the tradition. RRAuction COA.
