DescriptionApollo 17 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number F24, Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Alan Bean, with Handwritten LOA. This 35mm sterling silver medal was one of only eighty flown aboard Apollo 17, December 7-19, 1972, with crewmembers Gene Cernan, Ron Evans, and Harrison Schmitt. A total of 300 were minted to commemorate this sixth and final lunar landing of the NASA program. The obverse features the mission insignia depicting the head of the Greek god Apollo, a U.S. flag and eagle, the moon, and the surnames of the crew members. The mission dates are engraved on the reverse with the phrase "The Beginning". The serial number and sterling and Robbins hallmarks are on the rim. This is the rarest of all Apollo silver Robbins medallions, missing in many advanced collections. This example comes in its original case and numbered sticker. Excellent.
Included in this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on his personal letterhead. It reads, in full:
"I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 Silver Robbins Medal, serial number F24, traveled with Eugene Cernan, Ron Evans, and Harrison 'Jack' Schmitt aboard their Command Module 'America' during their mission to the moon in December 1972.
"The medal has been in my personal collection since that time.
"Alan Bean Apollo 12 LMP"
