Lot Details
STAFFORD'S APOLLO 9 ROBBINS MEDALLION.
Flown Apollo 9 Robbins medallion by the Robbins Company, 1 inch in diameter, made from sterling silver. The crew mission emblem is on the obverse with the crew names, mission dates, and serial number "274" engraved on the reverse.

Accompanied by THOMAS P. STAFFORD'S signed provenance letter which reads: "Enclosed with this letter is a sterling silver medallion carried on the flight of Apollo 9. It is one of the Robbins series of medallions made for our Apollo flight program and has serial number 274 engraved on the reverse side along with the Apollo 9 mission dates of "March 3-13 1969."
Apollo 9 was the first manned flight test of the Lunar Module by Commander James McDivitt and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart. Dave Scott was the Command Module Pilot. Their flight proved that the Lunar Module was able to perform all mission tasks and cleared the way for my lunar flight with another Lunar Module just 2 months later in May of 1969. These flights cleared the way for the first lunar landing of July 1969."
