Franklin Mint medal flown to the moon.Apollo 14 Flown Silver Franklin Mint Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Serial Number 0110, Signed and Certified on Holder, with Signed LOA. The obverse of this 39mm medal (one of two hundred minted) bears the mission insignia depicting an Astronaut Pin flying to the moon. The reverse depicts the surface of the moon with the inscription "Spacecraft/ Kitty Hawk & Antares/ Destination/ Fra Mauro - 1971". Each of the three Apollo 14 crewmembers carried sixty-five of these in their Command Module PPKs (for a total of 195 flown). After the mission, as many as fifty of them were returned to the Franklin Mint and melted down toward the production of 129,000+ Apollo 14 commemorative mini-coins that were sent to Franklin Mint subscribers in 1971. The rest were retained by the crewmembers themselves. Since Dr. Mitchell is the only surviving Apollo 14 crewmember, the Franklin Mint medals from his collection and with his written provenance are very desirable. Dr. Mitchell has signed on the front of this medal's 2x2 holder: "Flown on 'Kittyhawk'/ No. 0110/ EM" and "Edgar Mitchell LMP" on the back. Beautiful condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on his personal letterhead, stating, in part: "This document is to certify Apollo 14 Franklin Mint Medallion, serial number 0110. The accompanying medallion was flown aboard the spacecraft Kittyhawk on the Apollo 14 expedition to the moon which launched January 31, 1971, with Captain Alan Shepard as the commander, Commander Edgar Mitchell as Lunar Module Pilot, and Lt. Colonel Stuart Roosa as Command Module Pilot."
