    Description

    Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-32) Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Charlie Duke, Serial Number 123. This 39mm sterling silver medal, with the mission dates engraved on the reverse, is in its original issue plastic box.

The design features the mission objectives, plus the surnames of crewmembers Bonnie Dunbar, Marsha S. Ivins, G. David Low, Daniel C. Brandenstein, and James D. Wetherbee on both sides.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Charles M. Duke, Jr. on his personal letterhead.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
