DescriptionApollo 8 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot James Lovell, Serial Number 67. This sterling silver 38mm x 30mm triangular-shaped medal is in its original plastic box with the "67" sticker on the bottom. It was one of 300 flown on Apollo 8, December 21-27, 1968, into lunar orbit with crewmembers Borman, Lovell, and Anders. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia (a Lovell design) depicting a figure eight containing the surnames of the crew looping around the Earth and the moon symbolizing the mission number as well as the mission's orbits around both bodies. The three-sided shape with a rounded bottom duplicates the shape of the Apollo spacecraft. The reverse has the engraved dates of the mission, serial number, and sterling hallmark. These three men were the first ever to escape Earth's gravity and to see the "dark side of the moon." Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that Robbins Silver Medallion - Serial Number 67 was flown on board Apollo 8 mission. Apollo 8 was the first journey to the moon in December, 1968. This medallion is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
