    Description

    Apollo 10 Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Serial Number 70, with Signed LOA. This 29mm x 31mm sterling silver shield-shaped medal was one of 300 flown to the moon aboard Apollo 10, May 18-26, 1969, with crewmembers Tom Stafford, Gene Cernan, and John Young. The medallions stayed with Young aboard the Command Module Charlie Brown while Stafford and Cernan flew the Lunar Module Snoopy to within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface on the last, full-scale dress rehearsal for the Apollo 11 landing. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a large Roman numeral "X" on the moon with the command and lunar modules preparing to rendezvous. Earth is visible in the background. The reverse has the engraved mission dates along with the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. 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 10 silver Robbins medallion, serial # 70, was flown aboard the Apollo 10 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."
