Flown sterling silver Apollo 7 Robbins Medal, which has been made into a tie clip, with medal approximately 1.25 x 1, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia—a capsule orbiting Earth, the mission number, and the last names of crew members Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham. Reverse has an alligator-type clip soldered on, with the number “252” visible at the bottom. This was the very first Robbins Medal, designed for the Apollo 7 mission for Cunningham who wanted a special memento to take on the mission. The flown treasure proved so popular that every mission into space since has carried on the tradition. Medal originates from the Deke Slayton estate. RRAuction COA.
