    Description

    Skylab I (SL-2) Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 272, Directly from the Family Collection of Astronaut Richard Gordon. There were 300 of these 35mm sterling silver medals minted for the flight but only fifty were flown. This 35mm sterling silver medal has an obverse design based on the mission insignia designed by the legendary Frank Kelly Freas. The launch dates of Skylab and the first Skylab crew as well as the date of the crew's return are engraved on the reverse. This first post-Apollo mission, May 25-June 22, 1973, with crewmembers Charles Conrad, Paul Weitz, and Joe Kerwin, established a record for human spaceflight. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent.
