    Description

    Apollo 16 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion from the Collection of Astronaut Alan Bean. A 35mm sterling silver medal with the mission dates engraved on the reverse. This medallion, though not flown, was made to commemorate the Apollo 16 flight, the fifth manned mission to land on the moon. The crewmembers were Charlie Duke, John W. Young, and Ken Mattingly, Jr. for this April 20-27, 1972, mission. The design features an eagle and shield above the moon and the surnames of the crewmembers. The reverse features the engraved dates. Excellent condition.

    From the collection of Sue Bean-Gilliam and accompanied by a handwritten Letter of Authenticity on her letterhead stating "...[this] unflown silver Apollo Robbins medal was one that was ordered by Alan Bean from the Astronaut Office before the mission and has been with my family since that time...".
