Description


Historic flown sterling silver Apollo 11 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25″ diameter, with a raised early design on the face of the iconic Apollo 11 mission insignia, with the eagle carrying the olive branch in its beak. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the last names of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, along with the July 16, 1969, launch date; July 20, 1969, moon landing date; and July 24, 1969, return date. This medal is serial numbered “40.” In normal condition, with some spotting to the background. Medal is encapsulated in a plastic NGC holder and graded MS64. Includes an ALS signed "Michael Collins, Apollo XI CMP," dated July 2014, in full: "I hereby certify that the accompanying Robbins silver medallion, #40, was flown by me to the moon in July 1969, and was part of my personal collection.” Remarkably scarce flight-flown mementos such as this—particularly one from man’s first step into a brave new world—are highly prized by collectors, with this being an especially appealing example as it originates from the personal collection of one of the Apollo 11 astronauts.
