Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 10 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 x 1.25, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia and the last names of crew members Tom Stafford, John Young, and Gene Cernan. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “May 18–26, 1969” and serial numbered “71.” The medal is permanently encased in a cylindrical acrylic display, which is mounted within a metal stand set atop a small wooden base. In fine condition and cleaner than typically seen. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Tom Stafford, which reads, in part: “The silver Robbins medallion…numbered 71 and encased in an acrylic presentation, was flown in lunar orbit on the Apollo X mission…We were the second crew to orbit the Moon, and the first to fly the Lunar Module (LM) in lunar orbit. Gene Cernan and I flew the LM to within 15.6 km (8.4 nautical miles) of the lunar surface.” Also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation which pictures Stafford with this medal in its display and four contemporary, glossy photos relating to the Apollo 10 mission. A handsomely displayed example of this highly sought-after format.
