[b]Collecting the Robbins Medallions[/b]
Written as a continuation and compliment to his first book on the subject ([i]The Robbins Medallions, Flown Treasure from the Apollo Space Program[/i]), Howard C. Weinberger's [i]Collecting the Robbins Medallions[/i] provides images of all medallions issued after Apollo, including Skylab, ASTP, STS, ISS and "a finding of Long-Duration Space Flight medals", as well as population data, how many were flown, crew members and mission dates.
Weinberger writes, "most importantly, I have endeavored to get NGC, the third party numismatic grading and authentication service, to begin encapsulating the medals. I have a chapter on this alone. I believe this will address the restriking issue head-on, as well as a few other [concerns]."
[i]Collecting[/i] also provides an update section for the Apollo medals, and additional anecdotes and history that was not included in the first book, including how Weinberger came to understand the history of the Robbins. Other topics include: Care and Display, Valuation Qualifiers, Investor Recommended Medals, Disposition of the Dies, The Robbins Medal process, and more.
The 72 page, 8 1/2 x 11 format, soft cover will be available for $39.95 plus $5 shipping. Pre-orders can be sent to:
