    Description

    Apollo 16 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke, Serial Number 37, with Signed LOA. This 35mm diameter sterling silver medal was one of only ninety-eight (of a total mintage of 300) flown aboard Apollo 16, April 16-27, 1972, along with crewmembers John Young, Ken Mattingly, and Charlie 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 particularly desirable to collectors. Original case with numbered sticker on the bottom included. Excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Duke on his personal stationery stating, in full: "The enclosed Apollo 16 Medallion number 37 was flown to the moon by me during the flight of Apollo 16 which occurred April 16-27, 1972. I hope this medallion makes a nice addition to your collection."
