RR Auctions Apollo 8

Flown sterling silver Apollo 8 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.5 x 1.25, with a raised design on the face of the mission insignia—the number 8 making a pass around the moon and Earth—and the last names of crew members Frank Borman, James Lovell, and Bill Anders. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved “Dec. 21–27, 1968” and serial numbered “230.” Condition is mint state. Medal comes in its original presentation case, numbered “230.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 8 silver medallion numbered ‘230’ included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 8, December 21-27, 1968…After the mission, the Astronaut Office distributed the medallions accordingly. I specifically requested the Apollo 8 number ‘230’ included with this letter.” Scott requested number 230 to have a consistent collection and the number represented a Mercedes 230SL for which he had aspirations. Provenance: Dave Scott. RRAuction COA.
