Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 7 Robbins 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. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “Oct. 11, 1968” and numbered “52.” In fine condition, with some mild tarnishing and surface marks and a small lighter square on reverse from a small dab of previous adhesive. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Walt Cunningham which states, “This silver Apollo 7 Robbins Medallion (Serial Number 52)…was carried with me on the 4,500,000 mile flight of Apollo 7…I hereby warrant and certify it was given to my friend, Frank Brandstetter, from my personal collection of artifacts.” Brandstetter owned a resort in Acapulco where he would entertain astronauts during the Apollo era. Also included is a 2008 letter of authenticity from Brandstetter stating the medal is from his personal collection. RR Auction COA.
