Description


Unique collection of 109 unflown Space Shuttle Robbins medallions, comprising 102 sterling silver medals and 7 rare pre-production bronze examples, ranging from STS-1 to STS-132. These rare Robbins medals originate from the collection of a Robbins Company executive, and therefore have some unique traits: the bronze examples lack serial numbers, as do the sterling silver medals for STS-1 and STS-51-B; the bronze medallions and the sterling STS-51-B medallion are also missing their typical hallmarks. The medals typically measure about 1.5″ in diameter and feature raised mission insignia designs on the face with the launch and return dates engraved on the reverse. The bronze medallions, struck as part of a pre-production test proof process, are for STS-3, 41-C, 41-G, 51-B, 51-D, 51-G, and 61-A. The collection includes the sought-after restruck silver medallions for the tragic STS-51L and STS-107 missions. Among the other highlights are: the early missions such as STS-1, STS-3 (bronze), STS-4, STS-6, STS-7, and STS-8; the rarest Shuttle Robbins medal, STS-111, with only 94 produced; and notable missions such as STS-71, the first docking of a shuttle to a space station. Nearly all medallions include their original plastic cases with stiff blue felt liners. Condition is generally mint state. Accompanied by an original black Robbins box, marked on the front in white, “Robbins Awards.” A remarkable assemblage of sought-after Robbins medallions honoring America's prolific Space Shuttle program. Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply. Please call RR Auction for a quote.

A complete list of medallions and serial numbers is available here.
