DescriptionApollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Ron Evans, Serial Number 253. This 25mm sterling silver medal was one of 350 flown on 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. Its three-man crew consisted of James McDivitt, David Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. The obverse is not quite true to the mission insignia in that the lettering around the outside is left out. It does feature 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 has the dates of the mission, names of the crew, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Jan Evans (Mrs. Ron Evans) stating, in part: "I certify that the Apollo 9 silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 253, is one that was flown on board the Apollo 9 spacecraft... This medallion has been with our family since that time."
