Description


Flown Apollo 14 Robbins medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 14 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the full names of astronauts Alan B. Shepard, Stuart A. Roosa, and Edgar D. Mitchell, along with the January 31, 1971, launch date, February 5, 1971, moon landing date, and February 9, 1971, return date. This medal is serial numbered “220” along the rim. In normal condition, with a bit of light tarnishing around the rim. Accompanied by a 1996 letter of authenticity signed by Alan Shepard, which states: “This is to verify that the accompanying silver medal, the insignia of the flight of Apollo 14, was flown to the moon on board the spacecraft during the time period of January 31 until February 9, 1971. It bears the serial number of 220.” Also accompanied by a similar photocopied letter. Remarkably scarce flight-flown mementos such as this—particularly one flown to the moon and with astronaut certification—seldom find their way to the marketplace. RRAuction COA.
