Unique and exceedingly desirable flown sterling silver Apollo 11 Robbins Medal originating directly from the family of Neil Armstrong, approximately 1.25″ diameter, with a raised eagle carrying an olive branch in its beak. The reverse of the medal features the last names of astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins, and is engraved with the launch date of July 16, 1969, moon landing date of July 20, 1969, and return date of July 24, 1969. The medal is serial numbered “236.” Condition is mint state, with expected age wear. Presented on a ring suspended from a silver chain to be worn as a necklace. This is the only Robbins medallion personally owned by Armstrong to ever come to market; after returning from the moon Armstrong gave this as a gift to his brother-in-law, Alfred ‘Bud’ Trude, and it was subsequently left to his son and Armstrong’s nephew, Mike Paul Trude.
