Description


Flown Apollo 15 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 15 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “Man’s Flight Through Life Is Sustained By The Power Of His Knowledge” along with the July 26, 1971, launch date, July 30, 1971, moon landing date, and August 7, 1971, return date. This medal is serial numbered “072” along the rim. Normal condition. Medal originates from the collection of Pete Conrad, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Conrad which states: “This medallion, (serial # 072) was carried aboard Apollo XV by astronauts Dave Scott, Jim Irwin, and Al Worden during their mission, July 26–August 7, 1971. It has been in my personal collection since then.” Up to Apollo 15, the entire run of medallions was carried on each flight, until the misspelling of Apennines (as Appeninnes) led to a batch being sent back to the company to be re-struck. Unfortunately this could not be done in time for the launch which meant that only 127 of the 304 medallions were flown. RRAuction COA.
