NGC Certified "Ex. James A. McDivitt"Apollo 9 Flown MS65 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 132, Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jim McDivitt, with Signed LOA. This 25mm sterling silver medal was one of 350 flown aboard Apollo 9, March 3-13, 1969, in the first space test of the complete Apollo spacecraft that included the third piece of Apollo hardware- the lunar module. The three-man crew consisted of Jim McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. The obverse is based on the mission insignia, featuring a Saturn V rocket with the letters USA on it. To its right, an Apollo CSM is shown next to a LM; the CSM is trailing rocket fire in a circle around the Roman numerals "IX". The reverse features the dates of the mission, names of the crew, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Included is the original plastic case with the numbered sticker on the bottom, as is a COA from RR Auction. A desirable example from the collection of the mission commander. Beautiful.
Included with this lot is a signed illustrated Letter of Authentication from McDivitt on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I certify that this Robbins Medallion #132 was flown on Apollo 9 and is from my personal collection." This certificate is PSA/DNA stickered on the verso: T60474.
