Description


Flown sterling silver Apollo 13 Robbins medal, with a raised design of the mission insignia on the face, approximately 1.25″ in diameter, engraved on the reverse with the launch date of April 11, 1970, and the return date of April 17, 1970, encircled by the names of the astronauts in raised text. The medal is serial numbered “258” and includes its original matching case. Condition is mint state. Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Virginia Swigert, the sister of command module pilot, Jack Swigert, in part: “I certify that this Apollo 13 Flown Robbins Medal—Serial Number 258—is from Jack Swigert’s personal collection.” The Apollo 13 Robbins holds the distinction of being somewhat different than all of their other mission counterparts. Because of the last minute change to the crew—due to illness, Ken Mattingly was swapped out for Jack Swigert three days before launch—all of the flown medals were melted down and restruck with the names of the final crew.
