DescriptionApollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Backup Command Module Pilot Ron Evans, Serial Number 52F. Only ninety-three of these 35mm sterling silver medals (out of 283 minted) were actually flown on the historical Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, the first international manned space effort. Between July 17-19, 1975, following three years of preparations, three U.S. astronauts (Thomas Stafford, Vance Brand, and Deke Slayton) and two Soviet cosmonauts (Alexei Leonov and Valery Kubasov) linked an Apollo spacecraft and a Soyuz capsule in Earth orbit. The obverse design depicts the docking maneuver above the Earth and the names of the mission and crewmembers. The reverse features the title "First Joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. Space Flight" and the engraved dates. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. The original plastic box with the "052F" sticker on the bottom is included. 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 Soyuz (ASTP) silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 052 F, is one that was flown on board the Apollo Soyuz flight... This medallion has been with our family since that time."
