Scarce Apollo 11 Robbins medal, with serial number 257, owned by Buzz Aldrin. Front of coin has "Apollo 11" engraved above the mission insignia of an eagle landing on the moon's surface carrying an olive branch. Verso has three dates for the launch, "July 16, 1969", landing, "July 20, 1969", and return, "July 24, 1969". For the moon landing missions, three blank fields were included for the launch, lunar landing, and return dates and later engraved, as is the case here. Verso also has the "257" serial number engraved with each astronaut's last name. Coin measures 1.125'', made of sterling silver. In very good condition. This Robbins medal was given directly by Buzz Aldrin to the consignor Bill Tow upon the death of Bill's father, John Tow, when he was 10 years old. John and his wife Barbara Tow were close to Buzz and Joan Aldrin as they were neighbors on the same military base. Medal is accompanied by two LOAs from Barbara Tow as well as a copy of an envelope and partial letter from Joan Aldrin to Barbara, confirming their relationship. Lot is also accompanied by a signed photo of Buzz Aldrin to Bill Tow, which Mr. Aldrin gave him with the Robbins medal.
