Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Serial Number 247. There were 303 of these 35mm x 30mm oval sterling silver medals struck for this January 31-February 9, 1971, flight and all were flown with crewmembers Shepard, Roosa, and Mitchell. The obverse bears the mission insignia picturing an Astronaut Pin (a gold pin that NASA gives to astronauts upon completion of their first flight) flying from the Earth to the moon. The reverse has the dates of the launch, moon landing, and return engraved with the crew's full names around the edge along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks; the serial number is on the rim. It is in the original issue box with the "247" sticker on the bottom. Robbins medallions are particularly desirable when obtained directly from members of the mission's crew. Mitchell is the lone surviving crewmember. Excellent condition.

    Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Dr. Mitchell on his personal letterhead stating (in part): "This certification accompanies Apollo 14 Robbins Medallion, serial number 247. The 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 the Command Module Pilot..."
