DescriptionApollo 17 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans, Serial Number 155. This 35mm sterling silver medal, though not flown, was one of 300 minted to commemorate the December 6-19, 1972, mission of Apollo 17, which included the sixth and final lunar landing of the NASA program. Only eighty were actually flown with crewmembers Gene Cernan, Ron Evans, and Harrison Schmitt. The obverse features the mission insignia with the head of the Greek god Apollo, a U.S. flag and eagle, the moon, and the surnames of crewmembers. The mission dates are engraved on the reverse with the phrase "The Beginning". The serial number and hallmarks are on the rim. Includes its original plastic case with "155" sticker on the bottom. This comes from the collection of a crewmember making it extremely desirable. Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jan Evans (Mrs. Ron Evans) stating: "I certify that the Apollo 17 silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 155, although unflown, is a genuine Robbins Medallion. It was received by my husband Ron Evans, CMP Apollo 17, through the Astronaut Office at the completion of his Apollo 17 flight, December 1972. This medallion has been with our family since that time."

We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.View More Testimonials
