Description

    Skylab 1 (SL-2) NGC-Encapsulated MS64 Silver Robbins Medallion from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Paul Weitz. There were 300 sterling silver medals minted for this flight; fifty (Serial Numbers 1F-50F) were flown. This present example (Serial Number 68) is from the 250 that were not flown. It has been graded MS64 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and designated as "Ex. Paul Weitz" on the slab. Highly desirable thus. The obverse design of this 35mm medal is based on the mission insignia. The 1973 launch dates of Skylab and the first Skylab crew as well as the date of the crew's return are engraved on the reverse.

    Included with this item is a signed, handwritten Letter of Authenticity from Weitz on his personal letterhead stating that, "...is from my personal collection of artifacts from the mission and has been in my possession ever since it was struck." Excellent condition.
