    Apollo 13 Unflown PF65 Ultra Cameo NGC Silver Franklin Mint Medal, Serial Number 0120, Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, with Signed LOA. This 38mm medallion features the mission insignia on the obverse 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 images of and the text "Spacecraft Odyssey and Aquarius" and the crew's full names: "James A. Lovell Jr - Fred W. Haise Jr - Thomas K Mattingly". This is one of the only items that has been discovered to contain the names of the original crew (Mattingly was replaced at the last minute by Swigert). A beautiful and desirable medal.

This medal is from my personal collection and has been in my possession since the mission until being offered now."
