    Ex. John Young

    Apollo 10 Flown MS66 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 89, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, with Handwritten and Signed Letter of Authenticity. This 29mm x 31mm sterling silver shield-shaped medal was one of 300 flown to the moon on 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 the last, full-scale dress rehearsal for the Apollo 11 landing. The obverse of the medal features a large 3-D Roman numeral "X" on the moon's surface as the CSM orbits the moon while the LM flies up from its low pass; the reverse has the engraved mission dates along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Medals from the collections of mission crewmembers are very desirable. A beautiful Gem Uncirculated example with rare handwritten provenance.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten Letter of Certification from Young on his personal letterhead stating, in full: " I hereby certify that this Apollo 10 Silver Robbins medal, #89, was flown aboard the Apollo 10 mission May 18, 1969 through May 26, 1969. I also acknowledge that this medal is from my personal collection and has been in my possession since the mission. John W. Young/ Apollo 10 Command Module Pilot"
