    Description

    From the collection of the mission LMP.

    Apollo 9 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, Serial Number 120, with Signed LOA. This 25mm sterling silver medal was one of 350 flown aboard Apollo 9, March 3-13, 1969, in the first space test of the complete Apollo spacecraft that included the third piece of Apollo hardware- the lunar module. Its three-man crew consisted of Jim McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. The obverse is not quite true to the mission insignia as the lettering around the outside is left out. It does feature a Saturn V rocket with the letters USA on it. To its right, an Apollo CSM is shown next to a LM; the CSM is trailing rocket fire in a circle around the Roman numerals "IX". The reverse features the dates of the mission, names of the crew, the serial number, and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Robbins medallions from the collections of crewmembers of the flight represented are particularly desirable to collectors. Original case (lightly cracked on top) 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 9 silver Robbins medallion, serial # 120, was flown with me aboard the Apollo 9 mission in 1969. This medallion has been part of my personal collection since the mission."
