ROBBINS MEDALLION CARRIED ON APOLLO 9.
Flown on Apollo 9, a sterling silver medallion, 1 inch in diameter. Features the crew emblem of a Saturn V, CSM and LM and the Roman numeral IX. The reverse has the crew names around the rim and is engraved with mission dates of "March 3-13, 1969" and serial number "91."

Accompanied by Command Module Pilot DAVE SCOTT'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 91 engraved on the reverse side along with the Apollo 9 mission dates of "March 3-13 1969."
Apollo 9 was my second space flight. In March 1966 I had served as Pilot of the Gemini 8 mission along with Neil Armstrong. On Apollo 9 I served as Command Module Pilot. That mission included the first manned flight test of the Lunar Module by Commander James McDivitt and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart. Our flight proved that the Lunar Module was able to perform all mission tasks and made it possible for me to walk on the moon's surface in July 1971. This medallion spent ten days in Earth orbit in my PPK, and has been in my collection ever since."
