Space Shuttle Missions STS-1 through STS-135: James Buchli's
Complete Set of 135 Unflown Silver Robbins Medallions, One for Each
Mission, Includes an STS-29 Flown Example, with Signed Color Photo
& U.S. Astronaut HOF Program, with Handwritten and Signed
Certificate of Authenticity including a List of Serial Numbers.
Colonel Buchli is offering his lovingly-completed set of shuttle
medals to a lucky collector who will treasure them for the rarities
they are. Included are 135 sterling silver medals, all still in
their original cases with labels on the bottom, and in their
original mint state condition. All are gorgeous highly-detailed
works of medallic art, created in various shapes and sizes,
representing thirty years of the American space program (April 12,
1981 through July 8, 2011). What an incredible display this would
make! An incredibly difficult set to assemble from scratch. All
Ex. James Buchli
Veteran of four Space Shuttle missions
