Apollo 11 and 12 Commemorative Brochure Set

This set of two patches, mounted in a glossy brochure is from an unknown source, and unknown distrubution, perhaps mail order. The patches are sourced from Lion Brothers. Curiously, of all the examples of this set seen, the hard to find orange bordered Apollo 11 version is present. 

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

Apollo 11 - 4" - Unknown maker

This patch was acquired at auction. It is of modern manufacture as evident by the stitching methods and clear plastic back. However, this may be the most accurately rendered Apollo 11 patch to date. The colors closely resemble that of the original artwork (last photo) and the beta cloth emblem. Quantity and manufacturer unknown.

Apollo 11 - 3" - Lion Brothers

I have never seen this particular line of Lion Brothers' Apollo emblems before. Marketed under their "Put-Ons" emblems line, Lion Brothers produced these Apollo 11, Apollo 12, Apollo 13 and Apollo 14 patches. There may be others, but these are the only one's I have seen. The 3" Apollo 11 patch differs from the other 3" Apollo 11 patches from Lion Brothers. Had these not been in their original packaging, they would probably have not been able to be associated with Lion Brothers.

First Lunar Landing of Mankind - Swissartex

In the confusing realm of patch makers, it often comes down to the original packaging to determine who made exactly what. 

The Swissartex version of this patch can be identified by the number of "points" in the foremost craters, with 6 instead of the 10 or more of the other versions.
