DescriptionApollo 10 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 19, with Signed LOA from Mission Lunar Module Pilot Gene Cernan. 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 the mission insignia while the reverse has the engraved mission dates along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent. From the collection of Dolores A. Riley, sister of Gene Cernan.
Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Gene Cernan on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that Apollo X silver Robbins Medal, serial number 19, was flown with me aboard the Command Module, 'Charlie Brown', on our mission to the moon May 18-26, 1969. I presented this medallion to my sister, Dolores Riley, as a special memento of my historic mission upon my return."

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
