    Description

    Space Shuttle Challenger (STS-51L) Unflown Silver Robbins Medallion Serial Number 263. This 44mm x 40mm (overall) sterling silver medal, with the mission date engraved on the reverse, is in its original issue plastic box. This medallion, though not flown, was made to commemorate the January 28, 1986, flight of the Challenger, which tragically disintegrated just 73 seconds after liftoff. The design features the U.S. flag and the Challenger orbiter zooming around the Earth, plus the surnames of fallen crewmembers Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Francis "Dick" Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Sharon Christa McAuliffe, and Gregory Jarvis on both sides. Excellent.
