    Ex. Jim Irwin

    Apollo 12 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 148, Presented by Charles Conrad to Jim Irwin, in Framed Display with Letter of Authenticity. This 32mm sterling silver medal was one of 262 flown to the moon aboard Apollo 12, November 14-24, 1969, with crewmembers Charles Conrad, Dick Gordon, and Alan Bean. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a clipper ship arriving at the moon (it was an all-Navy crew), trailing fire and flying the U.S. flag. The reverse has the dates of the mission along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Double matted and professionally double-side framed with the letter below to an overall 17.75" x 20.25". Original Robbins case with number on bottom included. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a 2008-dated LOA on High Flight letterhead signed by Mrs. James B. Irwin (Mary). It reads, in full: "The medallion enclosed with this letter was carried to the Moon during November 14 to 24, 1969 on Apollo XII, which was the third [sic] manned lunar landing mission. The flight was commanded by Charles Conrad who was the third astronaut to walk on the Moon. He presented this medallion to my husband, James Irwin, after his return from the Moon. This medallion has been in our private collection since 1969. The Apollo XII mission emblem is on the front of the medallion with the mission launch, lunar landing, and return dates engraved on the back. It is one of the Robbins series of flown Apollo medallions and is serial number 148 of the Apollo XII set."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
