    Description

    The first medal in the Robbins series.

    Apollo 7 Flown Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Rusty Schweickart, Serial Number 186, with Signed LOA. This 32mm x 24mm sterling silver medal was one of only 255 flown aboard Apollo 7, the first manned mission in the Apollo program, October 11-22, 1968, with crewmembers Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham. It was an eleven-day Earth-orbital mission, the first manned launch of the Saturn IB launch vehicle, and the first three-man American space mission. The obverse of the medal features the mission insignia depicting a command service module, engine firing with the trail from that fire encircling a globe and extending out, symbolizing the Earth-orbital nature of the mission. The Roman numeral "VII" appears in the South Pacific Ocean and the crew's names appears on a wide arc at the bottom. The reverse has the date of the mission launch, 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 7 silver Robbins medallion, serial # 186, was flown aboard the Apollo mission in 1968. 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."
