Robbins medal flown aboard Apollo 13, the mission in which Jack Swigert announced, ''Houston, we have a problem here,'' while serving as Command Module Pilot. All of the original medals taken on the space flight were melted down and a new set was made from them featuring a new design. This is made from the flown metal, one of 404 newly-designed medals. Coin depicts mission insignia, including the name of the mission, three of Apollo's chariot horses flying toward the Moon, and the slogan ''Ex Luna, Scientia'' (from the moon, knowledge). Verso lists the crew members, space modules, and engraved dates of launch and return, as well as the serial number and the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. This is medal number 260. Sterling silver medal measures 1.25'', housed in its original ''Robbins Company'' plastic box with serial number sticker on the bottom. In lustrous, near fine condition. From the estate of Jack Swigert and with an LOA from his sister.
