DescriptionApollo 7 Flown MS64 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Moonwalker Buzz Aldrin, Serial Number 224, with LOA. This 32mm x 24mm sterling silver medal was one of only 255 flown aboard Apollo 7, the first manned mission in the Apollo program, October 11-22, 1968, with crewmembers Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham. It was an eleven-day Earth-orbital mission, the first manned launch of the Saturn IB launch vehicle, and the first three-man American space launch. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a command service module, engine firing with the trail from that fire encircling a globe and extending out, symbolizing the Earth-orbital nature of the mission. The Roman numeral "VII" appears in the South Pacific Ocean and the crew's names appears on a wide arc at the bottom. The reverse has the date of the launch, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Included is the original plastic case with the numbered sticker on the bottom. This medal was gifted by Aldrin to his sister Fay Ann around the time of the mission.
A Letter of Authenticity signed by Mrs. Potter's son (the executor of her estate) will accompany this lot.
