    Apollo 13 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Tom Stafford, Serial Number 370. A 32mm diameter sterling silver medallion in its original Robbins Company plastic box of issue but with no sticker present on the bottom (glue remnants though). There were 404 of these sterling silver medallions, incorporating the last-minute crewmember change, struck from flown metal. The design includes 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), and the engraved dates of launch and return along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed "Thomas P. Stafford" on his letterhead stating, in part: "This medallion flew to the moon during April 11 to 17, 1970 on the Apollo 13 mission. I received the medallion after the flight from Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell while I was Chief of the Astronaut Office... The medallion has been in my private collection since 1970... It is one of the Robbins series of flown Apollo medallions and is serial number 370 of the Apollo 13 set."
