    Apollo 10 Flown Robbins Sterling Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 29 mm medal, with the serial number 37, was flown aboard Apollo 10, the fourth manned mission in the Apollo program. The mission included the second crew to orbit the Moon, and the test of the lunar module in lunar orbit. The module came to within 8.4 nautical miles of the lunar surface during practice maneuvers. Apollo 10 has the record for the highest speed attained by a manned vehicle: 24,791 mph. The three-man crew consisted of Thomas Stafford, Commander; John W. Young, Command Module Pilot; and Eugene Cernan, Lunar Module Pilot.

    The shield-shaped emblem for the flight shows a large, three-dimensional Roman numeral X sitting on the moon's surface, in Stafford's words, "to show that we had left our mark." Although it did not land on the moon, the prominence of the number represents the significant contributions the mission made to the Apollo program. A CSM circles the moon as a LM ascent stage flies up from its low pass over the lunar surface. The earth is visible in the background. A wide border carries the word APOLLO at the top and the crew names around the bottom. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
