Description

    Apollo 7 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Support Crew Member Ron Evans, Serial Number 234. The 32mm sterling silver medal was one of 255 flown aboard Apollo 7, the first manned mission in the Apollo program, October 11-22, 1968, and the first in the Robbins series. 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 mission. The crew consisted of Walter M. Schirra, Donn F. Eisele, and Walter Cunningham. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia with a command and service module, engine firing, 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 dates of the mission, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. About excellent condition with some light scratches on the reverse.

    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 7 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 234, 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. Ron served as a member of the Support Crew for the Apollo 7 mission. It has been in my possession since I received it from him."
