Description

    Apollo 9 Flown Robbins Sterling Silver Medallion, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 25 mm medal, with the serial number 323, was flown aboard Apollo 9, the first space test of the complete Apollo spacecraft, including the third critical piece of Apollo hardware - the lunar module. Its three-man crew consisted of James McDivitt, David Scott, and Russell Schweickart.

    The obverse of the medal shows a Saturn V rocket with the letters USA on it. To its right, an Apollo CSM is shown next to a LM, with the CSM's nose pointed at the "front door" of the LM rather than at its top docking port. The CSM is trailing rocket fire in a circle. The reverse has the dates of the mission, names of the crew, and the number. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
