    Description

    NGC-Certified "Ex. Ron Evans".

    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown MS64 NGC Silver Robbins Medallion Originally from the Personal Collection of Backup Command Module Pilot Ron Evans, Serial Number 52F. Only ninety-three of these 35mm sterling silver medals (out of 283 minted) were actually flown on the historical Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, the first international manned space effort. Between July 17-19, 1975, following three years of preparations, three U.S. astronauts (Thomas Stafford, Vance Brand, and Deke Slayton) and two Soviet cosmonauts (Alexei Leonov and Valery Kubasov) linked an Apollo spacecraft and a Soyuz capsule in Earth orbit. The obverse design depicts the docking maneuver above the Earth and the names of the mission and crewmembers. The reverse features the title "First Joint U.S.-U.S.S.R. Space Flight" and the engraved dates. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. A Choice Uncirculated example.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Jan Evans" on Ron Evans letterhead, stating: "I certify that the Apollo Soyuz (ASTP) silver Robbins Medallion, serial number 052 F, is one that was flown on board the Apollo Soyuz flight. It was received by my husband Ron Evans, CMP Apollo 17, through the Astronaut Office at the completion of the flight. This medallion has been with our family since that time. Ron was a member of the backup crew for the ASTP flight."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
