Description

    Apollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission CapCom Ron Evans, Serial Number 252. 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 features 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 Jay Evans (Ron Evans' brother) stating: "To whom it may concern: I hereby certify that the Apollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 252, 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 Capsule Communicator for the Apollo 9 mission. It has been in my possession since I received it from him."
