    Description

    Ex. Jerry Carr

    Apollo 17 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 288, Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Jerry Carr, with LOA. This 35mm diameter 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 reverse features the names of the modules, Challenger (lunar) and America (command), the phrase "The Beginning," and the engraved mission dates. The serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks are on the rim. Original case with numbered sticker on the bottom included. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authentication from Carr on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "The exclusively forged Robbins medallions carried into space by Apollo astronauts since the Apollo VII mission have become some of the most sought-after items for space collectors and enthusiasts. This Robbins medallion, numbered 288, was made available to me by the crew and has been the property of the Carr family collection ever since."
