Description

    Apollo 11 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission CapCom Ron Evans, Serial Number 152. This 28mm sterling silver medal was one of 450 flown on Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 16-24, 1969, with crewmembers Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The obverse depicts Collins' early and original concept for the mission insignia with the eagle carrying an olive branch in its mouth. NASA thought the sharp, open talons of the eagle looked too "warlike" and the olive branch, representing peace, was moved to the claws. This is one of, if not the only, major official item that renders the insignia as it was meant to be by the astronaut designer. The reverse has the dates of the mission, surnames of the crew, and the serial number. No original plastic Robbins case is included. Medal in extremely fine condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Jay Evans (Ron Evans' brother) stating: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 11 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 152, that accompanies this letter was given to me by my brother Ron Evans, Apollo 17 Command Module Pilot, from his personal collection of space memorabilia. Ron served as a Capsule Communicator for the Apollo 11 mission. It has been in my possession since I received it from him."
