Description

    An amazing complete collection of flown Apollo Robbins Medallions.

    Apollo Bracelet Containing All Eleven Flown Silver Robbins Medallions from the personal collection of astronaut Paul J. Weitz. An amazing opportunity to purchase a complete collection of the popular Apollo Robbins medallions. All are professionally holed and mounted with jump rings to an attractive sterling silver bracelet. Individual serial numbers as as follows: Apollo 7 (#197); Apollo 8 (#254); Apollo 9 (#320); Apollo 10 (#225); Apollo 11 (#139); Apollo 12 (#243); Apollo 13 (# 371) (made from flown metal); Apollo 14 (#118); Apollo 15 (#116); Apollo 16 (#55); and Apollo 17 (#F42).

    Paul Weitz was pilot of Skylab I and commander of Shuttle mission STS-6. He was selected as an astronaut in the fifth group in April 1966. As a member of the astronaut office, he had the opportunity to obtain these flown medallions from all the Apollo flights and they have been in his personal collection since the respective missions.

    A note to condition purists: These are obviously holed; they were expertly done though and the holes are extremely tiny. Otherwise, the conditions are excellent. It may be possible for a fine jeweler to somehow fill these holes to where they would be less visible. The importance of and the history behind this group of medallions should far outweigh concerns of condition. A set without the holes would be estimated at two to three times the price of these. It is indeed a rare opportunity to own such a wonderful set with the impeccable provenance of these. A handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Paul Weitz is included. From the personal collection of Paul Weitz.
