Skylab II Robbins medallion, unflown, approximately 1.25” diameter, with a raised design of the mission insignia on the face, and the mission and astronauts’ names. The reverse of the sterling silver medallion depicts the Skylab space station with the July 28–September 25,1973, mission dates engraved. This medal is serial numbered along the rim, “062,” along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a hand written letter of authenticity from Sue Bean, the wife of Alan Bean, the mission's Commander, which states, in full: “Skylab II medallion, number 062, is an unflown Robbins medallion from the Bean family personal collection. My husband, Alan, flew on Apollo XII and Skylab II.” Also included is a photo of astronaut Alan Bean holding the actual medallion. Robbins medallions from the collection of that flight's Commander, like this one, are always the most desirable. RR Auction COA.
