Description

    Given by Ron Evans to his brother

    Apollo 17 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 95, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Ron Evans. 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. Very desirable coming from a crewmember. Beautiful.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
