APOLLO 9Apollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 272, Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Jack Swigert, with 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. The original plastic Robbins case with numbered sticker on the bottom is included. Excellent.
Included with this lot is a Letter of Authenticity signed by Jack Swigert's sister, Virginia Swigert, certifying "that this Apollo 9 Robbins Medal Flown serial number 272 was personally owned by Jack Swigert" and that it comes directly from his estate.
