Farthest Reaches is very pleased to offer a highly desirable flown Apollo 13 Robbins medallion. It is #24 and comes from the personal collection of Jack Swigert. It's provenance is outstanding as it comes with a 1977 hand written letter of presentation to the individual Jack was gifting it to. The letter itself has excellent content.

Robbins medallions with modern letters of authenticity from astronauts sell regularly at auctions of space memorabilia. The most recent Apollo 13 Robbins medallion from Commander James Lovell, for example, sold for $17,925. It is virtually unheard of, however, to find one with a vintage full-page handwritten letter such as this: from an astronaut gifting one of his Robbins medallions, flown with him on a mission just a few years before. Even better perhaps is that Swigert expresses such heartfelt sentiment related to Apollo 13.

For additional detail and to view images of this unique item with letter, visit The medallion may be found on our homepage.

As always, thanks for your continued support...
