DescriptionApollo 17 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans, Serial Number 97. This 35mm diameter sterling silver medal includes its original plastic case with the serial number "97" sticker on the bottom, and 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 Cernan, Evans, and 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. The fact that it was originally from the collection of a crewmember makes it even more desirable. Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jay Evans (Ron Evans' brother) stating: "To whom it may concern: I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 Silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 97, that accompanies this letter was given to me by my brother Ron Evans, Apollo 17 Command Module Pilot, from his personal collection of space memorabilia. It has been in my possession since I received it from him."

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
