Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 113, Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean, Certified on Case, with Handwritten LOA. This 32mm sterling silver medal was one of 262 flown to the moon aboard Apollo 12, November 14-24, 1969, with crewmembers Conrad, Gordon, and Bean. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a clipper ship arriving at the moon (it was an all-Navy crew), trailing fire and flying the U.S. flag. There are four stars in the background, one each for the three astronauts who flew the mission and one for Clifton Williams who was killed on October 5, 1967, during a training flight. He had been assigned to the back-up crew for what would be the Apollo 9 mission and would have most likely been assigned as lunar module pilot for Apollo 12. The reverse has the dates of the mission along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Bean has written: "Apollo 12/ Silver/ #113/ Flown" on a white sticker on the bottom of the included case. Robbins medals from the members of the flight crew are particularly desirable. Beautiful.

    Included in this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on his personal letterhead. It reads, in full:
    "I hereby certify that Apollo 12 Silver Robbins Medal, serial number 113, traveled with me aboard our Command Module, 'Yankee Clipper' during the Apollo 12 Mission in November 1969.

    "This medal has been in my collection since that time."

    "Alan Bean Apollo 12 LMP"

    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.
