    Description

    Apollo 10 Flown MS64 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Moonwalker Buzz Aldrin, Serial Number 266, with LOA. This 29mm x 31mm sterling silver shield-shaped medal was one of 300 flown to the moon aboard Apollo 10, May 18-26, 1969, with crewmembers Tom Stafford, Gene Cernan, and John Young. The medallions stayed with Young aboard the Command Module Charlie Brown while Stafford and Cernan flew the Lunar Module Snoopy to within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface on a full-scale dress rehearsal for the Apollo 11 landing. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a large Roman numeral "X" on the moon with the command and lunar modules preparing to rendezvous. Earth is visible in the background. The reverse has the engraved mission dates along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Included is the original plastic case with the numbered sticker on the bottom. This medal was gifted to his older sister Fay Ann (who gave him his "Buzz" moniker) soon after the time of the flight.

    A Letter of Authenticity signed by Mrs. Potter's son (the executor of her estate) will accompany this lot.
