Description

    Apollo 10 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, Serial Number 109. This sterling silver shield-shaped medal, 29mm x 31mm, is in its original plastic box. It was one of 300 flown on Apollo 10, May 18-26, 1969, to the moon with crewmembers Stafford, Cernan, and 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 has the mission insignia while the reverse has the engraved mission dates along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent condition.

Young" on his personal stationery, stating: "I hereby certify that Apollo 10 silver Robbins Medal, serial number 109, was flown to the moon with me aboard Apollo X May 18-26, 1969, and has been part of my personal collection since the mission."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
