    Description

    Skylab Set of Three Unflown Silver Robbins Medallions Originally from the Personal Collection of Skylab I Pilot Paul Weitz, with Signed LOA. A beautiful set of medals commemorating the three manned Skylab missions, as follows.
    Skylab I (SL-2) Serial Number 71. This 35mm sterling silver medal has an obverse design 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. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks.
    Skylab II (SL-3) Serial Number 196. This 35mm sterling silver medal's obverse features the mission insignia, Leonardo da Vinci's famous "Vitruvian Man" hovering above a half-Earth/ half-sun disk with the surnames of the crewmembers above and "Skylab II" below. The reverse depicts the Skylab station with the July 28-September 25, 1973, mission dates engraved. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks.
    Skylab III (SL-4) Serial Number 188. This 37mm x 35mm sterling silver has three rounded sides. The obverse features a large number "3", the astronauts' surnames, and three circular icons symbolizing the three major areas of investigation in the mission: a tree representing man's natural environment; a hydrogen atom representing man's exploration of the physical world; and a human silhouette representing mankind. The reverse depicts the Comet Kohoutek with engraved mission dates. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks.
    All are in excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on Weitz's letterhead stating, in full: "These unflown Skylab medallions (SL-1, #71; SL-II, #196, SL-III, #188) are from my personal collection."
