Apollo 16 - 4" - Crew Replica - A-B Emblem

A version of the A-B Emblem was recently identified as the type as word by the crew after their flight. The patch is identified by having darker thread used for the crater details on the front. While hard to distinguish from the front, it is readily observed on the back side where the two colors of grey are very obvious. This patch was later made in a replica form for the Willabee and Ward patch set, with a plastic back.

Another version has been identified as being provided by Breast O' Chicken.
