    Description

    Apollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Tie Tack/ Pin, Serial Number 39, Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, with Signed Letter of Certification. This 25mm sterling silver medal was one of 350 flown aboard Apollo 9, March 3-13, 1969, in the first space test of the complete Apollo spacecraft that included the lunar module. Its three-man crew consisted of Jim McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. The obverse features a Saturn V rocket with the letters "USA" on it. To its right, an Apollo CSM is shown next to a LM; the CSM is trailing rocket fire in a circle around the Roman numerals "IX". The reverse features the dates of the mission, names of the crew, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. It has been modified by Robbins to be used as a pin or tie tack. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Rusty Schweickart on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that Apollo 9 silver Robbins Medallion, serial # 39, which was made into a pin by the Robbins Company, was flown with me aboard the Apollo 9 mission in 1969. This medallion has been in my personal collection since the mission."

    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.
