STS-37 - 4" - Unknown maker

STS-37, the eighth flight of the Space Shuttle Atlantis, was a six-day mission with the primary objective of launching the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO), the second of the Great Observatories program which included the visible-spectrum Hubble Space Telescope, the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the infrared Spitzer Space Telescope. The mission also featured two spacewalks, the first since 1985.

The differentiator between makers of this patch is usually made by the way the stars are embroidered. This version of the STS-37 patch has smaller stars, and curiously, a different number of stars.

This version of the STS-37 patch was manufactured by an unknown maker. It only has 8 stars instead of the normal 10 stars, & only 2 colours, (red & yellow), instead of 3 in the Shuttle & payload satellite vapour trail found on all other versions of this STS-37 patch. This patch has a clear shiny plastic coated backing.
