Alan Bean's unflown Skylab III (SLM-2) Robbins medallion, approximately 1.25” diameter, with a raised design of the mission insignia on the face. 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 edge, “062." 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 are extremely desirable.
