On the reverse is an emblem representing the trip from the Earth to the moon with "ЯНВАРЬ 1966Г" (January 1966) engraved. Also, a 2" x 1.875" pentagonal-shaped medal engraved "ЯНВАРЬ 1966Г" in the center with the same text as above around. The reverse features the Soviet State Emblem trimmed in red enamel.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
