    One of only 20 flown.

    Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-3) Flown Robbins Silver Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jack Lousma, Serial Number 4F, with Signed COA. This 35mm sterling silver medal is in its original plastic case with the "4F" sticker on the bottom, It is one of only twenty flown (of 207 minted) aboard Columbia on its third orbital test flight with Commander Jack Lousma and Pilot Gordon Fullerton. The obverse features the mission insignia with the shuttle emerging from a star design with the crew's surnames and Columbia around. The reverse includes their full names and the mission information, "March 22, 1982" and "March 30, 1982 / RW17 White Sands, NM". The serial number is found on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. This is a very rare flown Robbins medallion, and all the more collectible because it is from the collection of the mission commander. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Jack Lousma" on his letterhead, stating (in full): "I hereby certify that silver STS-3 Robbins Medal, serial number 4F, is one that was flown with me aboard the mission March 22-30, 1982. This medal is from my personal collection and has been in my possession since the mission."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
