    Description

    One of only ninety-eight flown to the moon on Apollo 16.

    Apollo 16 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Serial Number 97. This 35mm diameter sterling silver medal is still in its original plastic case with a sticker numbered "97" on the bottom. It was one of only ninety-eight (of a total mintage of 300) flown aboard Apollo 16, April 16-27, 1972, the fifth manned mission to land on the moon, along with crewmembers Young, Mattingly, and Duke. The obverse features the mission insignia, an eagle and shield above the moon with the surnames of the crewmembers. The reverse features the engraved dates of the launch, landing, and return. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Robbins medallions from the collections of crewmembers of the particular flight are the most desirable to collectors. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed by Young on his personal letterhead.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
