    Description

    One of only forty-six flown

    Space Shuttle Challenger (STS-41-C) Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 5F, with a Signed Presentation Certificate from Mission Pilot Dick Scobee to His Brother's Family. This 1.5" diameter slightly odd-shaped sterling silver medal was one of only-six flown (of 155 minted) aboard the fifth mission of Space Shuttle Challenger (eleventh Shuttle mission overall) with crewmembers Robert Crippen, Dick Scobee, Terry Hart, James van Hoften, and George Nelson. This mission captured and repaired the "Solar Max" satellite and deployed the LDEF (Long Duration Exposure Facility) apparatus. The obverse features a helmet visor of an astronaut on EVA picturing the Sun's rays, the Challenger deploying the LDEF and another astronaut on EVA repairing the "Solar Max"; the crew's surnames are around the edge. The reverse also includes the crew's surnames along with the engraved information, Launched "April 6, 1984" and Landed "April 13, 1984 / RW17 Edwards AFB CA". The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. A rare medal, only the second Heritage has offered. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a notarized Certificate of Authenticity dated December 18, 1984, signed by Scobee. The original NASA envelope in which this medal and COA were sent to Mr. and Mrs. James R. Scobee, Marty and Kim is included. Also, a signed Letter of Authenticity from brother James R. Scobee.
