    Description

    Space Shuttle STS-41-B Flown Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 37F, Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, with Letter of Certification. This 47mm x 32mm oval sterling silver medal is one of 52 flown on this mission (of 166 minted) with Commander Vance Brand, Pilot Robert Gibson, and Mission Specialists Bruce McCandless II, Robert Stewart, and Ron McNair. The obverse features the mission insignia as designed by artist Robert McCall depicting the shuttle, the satellite deployment, and the MMU test by McCandless, with the ship's name and the surnames of the crew around. The reverse includes the names of the crewmembers and the engraved launch and landing dates, February 3-11, 1984. This was the mission where McCandless made the first untethered EVA, notably caught for posterity in several striking and iconic photos. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Original case with numbered sticker on the bottom included. First flown example Heritage has offered. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed LOC from Bruce McCandless's daughter Tracy McCandless.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
