    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 189, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mrs. Edward H. White II, with LOA. A stunning 32mm sterling silver medal. Due to the last minute substitution of Swigert for Mattingly and the problems that prohibited Apollo 13 from accomplishing its mission, all of the original flown medallions were melted down. This is one of 404 newly-designed sterling silver medallions that were struck from the flown metal. The design features the mission insignia depicting the name of the mission, three of Apollo's chariot horses flying toward the Moon, and the slogan "Ex Luna, Scientia" ("from the moon, knowledge"). The reverse features the names of the crewmembers, the modules, Aquarius (lunar) and Odyssey (command), the engraved dates of launch and return, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Robbins medallions from the collections of crewmembers of the particular flight are quite desirable to collectors. The original plastic Robbins case with numbered sticker on the bottom is included. Beautiful in design and condition.

    Included with this lot is a 2001-dated letter from Milestones, signed by Stephen R. Datz stating, in full: "This is to certify that Robbins silver medallion (serial #189) was flown aboard the Apollo 13 mission to the moon and that it was previously the property of Mrs. Edward H. White II, who originally received it from NASA."
