One of Only Fifty Flown.Skylab I (SL-2) Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Serial Number F16. This 35mm sterling silver medal is in its original plastic box with the "016" sticker on the bottom. There were 300 sterling silver medallions minted for this flight but only fifty were flown making this more rare than any of the Apollo-flown pieces. The obverse design is based on the mission insignia designed by the legendary Frank Kelly Freas. The launch dates of Skylab and the first Skylab crew as well as the date of the crew's return are engraved on the reverse. This first post-Apollo mission, May 25-June 22, 1973, with crewmembers Conrad, Weitz, and Kerwin, established a record for human spaceflight duration and were the first space station occupants to safely make it back to Earth. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from John Young stating: "I hereby certify that Skylab I (SL-2) silver Robbins Medal, serial number F 16, was flown aboard Skylab I (SL-2) May 25-June 22, 1973. I obtained it through the Astronaut Office and it has been a part of my personal collection since the mission."
