Description

    Apollo 12 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Serial Number 200, with Signed LOA. This 32mm sterling silver medal was one of 262 flown to the moon aboard Apollo 12, November 14-24, 1969, with crewmembers Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon, and Alan Bean. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a clipper ship arriving at the moon (it was an all-Navy crew), trailing fire and flying the U.S. flag. There are four stars in the background, one each for the three astronauts who flew the mission and one for Clifton Williams who was killed on October 5, 1967, during a training flight. He had been assigned to the back-up crew for what would be the Apollo 9 mission and would have most likely been assigned as lunar module pilot for Apollo 12. The reverse has the dates of the mission along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. This is only the third Apollo 12 Robbins that Heritage has offered. Original case with numbered sticker on the bottom included. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Russell L. Schweickart" on his personal letterhead, stating: "I hereby certify that this Apollo 12 silver Robbins medallion, serial # 200, was flown aboard the Apollo 12 mission in 1969. As a member of the astronaut office, I was permitted to purchase up to two Robbins medallions from each mission. This medallion has been part of my personal collection since the mission."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
