RR Auction Apollo 13 Robbins Medal and ALS

RR Auctions Apollo 13Flown Apollo 13 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 13 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the full names of astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert, along with spacecraft names Aquarius and Odyssey, the April 11, 1970, launch date, and April 17, 1970, return date. This medal is serial numbered “25.” Medal was in a removable holder on a chain, which will be included. Accompanied by an ALS from Jack Swigert, one page, 7 x 8.75, January 4, 1977. In part: “Apollo 13 was a memorable experience for me. And I hope this Medallion which we carried aboard our spacecraft will bring you the same good fortune Apollo 13 did for me.” Medal is in normal condition, with some scattered wear to the edge from a previous holder. ALS in fine condition, with mild intersecting folds (one passing through a single letter of the signature). Flown Robbins Medals are among the most sought after space collectibles, and this, with a vintage letter of provenance from Swigert—a rarity in itself—is one of the most interesting pairings we have seen. RR Auction COA.

RR Auction Apollo 13 Flown Robbins Medal

RR Auction Apollo 13

RR Auction Apollo 13

Flown Apollo 13 Robbins Medal, approximately 1.25 diameter, with a raised design on the face of the Apollo 13 mission insignia. The reverse of the sterling silver medal is engraved with the full names of astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert, along with spacecraft names Aquarius and Odyssey, the April 11, 1970, launch date, and April 17, 1970, return date. This medal is serial numbered “230.” Condition is mint state. Medal comes in its original case, numbered “230.” Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Dave Scott stating, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 13 silver medallion numbered ‘230’ included with this letter is from my personal collection and was flown aboard Apollo 13, April 11-17, 1970…After the mission, the Astronaut Office distributed the medallions accordingly. I specifically requested the Apollo 13 number ‘230’ included with this letter.” The Apollo 13 Robbins holds the distinction of being somewhat different than all of their other mission counterparts. Because of the last minute change to the crew (Jack Swigert for Ken Mattingly) all of the flown medals were melted down after the mission and new ones struck from the metal. 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.
