Description


Historic and very scarce flown Apollo 17 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 diameter, with a raised design on the face of 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 “F15.” Condition is mint state. Encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and graded MS67. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Apollo 15 Commander Dave Scott stating, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 silver medallion number ‘15’ included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 17…After the mission, the Astronaut Office distributed the medallions accordingly. I specifically requested the Apollo 17 number ‘15’ included with this letter.” Also accompanied by its original presentation case numbered ‘15.’ 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. Perhaps the most sought after and difficult-to-acquire of all the Apollo flown medals, with a neat tie-in between the former moonwalker and his own mission. RRAuction COA.
