ROBBINS MEDALLION CARRIED ON APOLLO 15.
Flown Apollo 15 medallion by the Robbins Company, 1½ inches in diameter, made from sterling silver. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the mission dates engraved on the reverse. Serial number 105 is engraved on the medallion rim. One of only 127 medallions carried on the mission.
Accompanied by an October 8, 2007 TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY MRS. JAMES IRWIN, reading in part: "The medallion enclosed with this letter was carried to the Moon during July 26 to August 7, 1971 on Apollo 15, which was the fourth manned lunar landing mission. The flight employed the first use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle on the Moon's surface. It was the first flight to make three separate surface explorations by my late husband Astronaut James Irwin and David Scott.
There were only 127 silver medallions carried on the flight. Due to a spelling error of the landing site name, 177 of the 304 medallions originally struck were returned to the Robbins Company to correct the error. Because of the length of this process, they could not be corrected prior to the Apollo 15 launch date and were not flown. The 127 medallions that were flown with the error contain the initials of the Apollo 15 mission emblem designer, Italian Emilio Pucci. His initials are just above the 'R' in Worden's name.
[The medallion] ... is one of the Robbins series of flown Apollo medallions and is serial number 105 of the Apollo 15 set. In addition, a copy of the original medallion distribution list with serial numbers written by my husband's own hand is included."
