Description


Flown Apollo 13 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 13 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the full names of astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert, along with spacecraft names Aquarius and Odyssey, the April 11, 1970, launch date, and April 17, 1970, return date. This medal is serial numbered “373.” Normal condition. This item originated from the collection of Pete Conrad, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Conrad, which reads, “This medallion, Serial No. 373, was carried aboard Apollo 13 by astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise on April 1970. It has been in my personal collection since.”

The Apollo 13 Robbins hold the distinction of being somewhat different than all of their other mission counterparts. Because of the last minute change to the crew (Jack Swigert for Ken Mattingly) all of the flown medals were melted down after the mission and new ones struck from the metal. RRAuction COA.
