Description

NGC-Certified "Ex. John W. Young"

Apollo 13 Flown MS69 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Backup Commander John Young, Serial Number 402, with Signed LOA. A 32mm sterling silver medal. Due to the last minute crew change and the problems that prohibited Apollo 13 from accomplishing its mission, all of the original flown medallions were melted down. This is one of 404 newly designed sterling silver medallions that were struck from the flown metal. The design features the mission insignia depicting the name of the mission, three of Apollo's chariot horses flying toward the Moon, and the slogan "Ex Luna, Scientia" ("from the moon, knowledge"). The reverse features the names of the crewmembers, the modules, Aquarius (lunar) and Odyssey (command), the engraved dates of launch and return, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. A gorgeous Superb Gem Uncirculated example; you're not likely to find a nicer one.

Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on Young's letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that Apollo 13 silver Robbins Medal, serial number 402, was struck from silver flown to the moon aboard Apollo 13 April 11-17, 1970, and has been a part of my personal collection since the mission. [signed] John W. Young/ Apollo Astronaut"
