Description


Historic flight-flown Apollo 17 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face the Apollo 17 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “America-Challenger Apollo XVII—The Beginning” along with the December 6, 1972, launch date, December 11, 1972, moon landing date, and December 19, 1972, return date. This medal is serial numbered “F48.” Normal condition. Accompanied by a 2001 certificate of authenticity from Charlie Duke stating “The accompanying Apollo 17 silver Robbins medallion, bearing serial number 48, originated from my personal space collection, where it has remained for the previous thirty years.” Some researchers have stated that only serial numbers F1 to F80 were flown of 300 total medallions struck. The medal also marked the first use of an “F” with a serial number to denote a flown medallion. RRAuction COA.
