    Description

    Flown around the moon aboard the Command Module Charlie Brown.

    Apollo 10 Flown Sterling Silver Robbins Medallion, Serial Number #43 from the collection of mission member, Lunar Module Pilot Gene Cernan. 28mm x 31mm, with the dates of the mission engraved on the reverse, "May 18-26, 1969.", and is in the original Robbins Company plastic case with the "43" sticker on the underside. This is one of 250 such medals carried aboard the Apollo 10 mission to the moon by its crew, 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 47,000 feet from the lunar surface on the last, full-scale dress rehearsal for the Apollo 11 landing.

    The crew created the Apollo 10 emblem shown on the medallion. The images in the center depict the procedures that were carried out during the mission with "Apollo" above and the crew names "Stafford Young Cernan" beneath. The large Roman numeral "X" standing on the lunar surface symbolizes the significance of the mission in setting the stage for the upcoming lunar landing by Apollo 11.

    The specially struck Robbins medallions carried into space by astronaut crews starting with the Apollo 7 mission in 1968 are some of the most sought-after items for space collectors. This medallion is complete with written authentication by Apollo 10 Lunar Module Pilot, Gene Cernan. From the personal collection of Captain Gene Cernan accompanied by written authentication by Cernan.
