    Space Shuttle Challenger (STS-7) Unflown MS67 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number 182, Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Rusty Schweickart, with Signed Letter of Certification. A 38mm sterling silver medal, one of 207 minted, commemorates the second mission of Challenger with America's first female astronaut Sally Ride aboard. The mission insignia shown on the obverse incorporates the shuttle with seven stars in the background representing the flight sequence and a five-armed symbol at right representing the four man, one woman crew; the crew's surnames are below with the shuttle name above. The reverse duplicates the surnames and shuttle name around with the engraved launch and landing dates at center. The serial number is found on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. The first of these Heritage has ever offered. Tagged by NGC "Ex: Russell L. Schweickart". A Superb Gem Uncirculated example.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Rusty Schweickart on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that silver STS 7 Robbins Medallion, serial # 182, although unflown, is an authentic Robbins Medallion that I received through the Astronaut Flight Office. It has been in my personal collection since the STS 7 mission in 1983."

    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.
