    Description

    This medal flew more than thirty-four million miles during its eighty-four days in space

    Skylab III (SL-4) Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 21F, Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Jack Swigert, with Signed LOA. This 37mm x 35mm sterling silver medal with three sides was one of only seventy flown (of 190 minted) on this record-breaking mission with crewmembers Gerald Carr, William Pogue, and Ed Gibson that lasted an incredible eighty-four days, from November 16, 1973 to February 8, 1974. The obverse features a large number "3", the astronaut surnames, and three circular icons symbolizing the three major areas of investigation in the mission: a tree representing man's natural environment; a hydrogen atom representing man's exploration of the physical world; and a human silhouette representing mankind. The reverse depicts the Comet Kohoutek with engraved mission dates. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. The original plastic Robbins case with pad and numbered sticker on the bottom is included. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Authenticity signed by Jack Swigert's sister, Virginia Swigert, certifying "that this Skylab 3 Flown Robbins Medal is from Jack Swigert's personal collection" and that it comes directly from his estate.
