    Luna 9 Spacecraft Commemorative Emblems. A 5" x 1.5" pennant-shaped red enamel medal with the Soviet State Emblem and the text: "СОЮЗ СОВЕТСКИХ СОНИАЛИСТИЦЕСКИХ РЕСПУБЛИК" (USSR). 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. Luna 9 was launched January 31, 1966, and was the first spacecraft to achieve a soft landing on the moon (or any other planetary body). Beautiful medals as originally only presented to Soviet dignitaries. Excellent.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
