Apollo 17 - 4" - Swissartex

This is the classic Swissartex version of the Apollo 17 patch. Fully embroidered with a plastic coated back. The real tell here is the odd nose on Apollo.

Apollo 17 - 4" - Crew "Initialed" version

Extremely rare, only 150 of these were issued to the each of the astronauts. While unflown, they bear the hallmarked initials of each astronaut, "HS" Harrison Schmitt, "RE" Ronald Evans, "EC" Eugene Cernan. The outer border is slightly wider than the crew or souvenir versions. Produced by A-B Emblem and most still bear the original sticker on the back. "HS" version pictured below. A star also marks this variety from the souvenir and crew versions.

Apollo 17 - 4" - Lion Brothers

Once again, LionBrothers version of the patch exceeds the quality of the more common A-B Emblem souvenir version. Their trademark hallmark appears as an upside down "17" on the bottom of Apollo's neck. White thread used on the Eagle with a bare cloth back. The light blue border is more faithful to the original, though they used a more appealing radial border.

Apollo 17 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Fully-embroidered. Decent detail for a 3" patch, noticibly in the extra stars and stitching in the galaxies. I prefer this version from the A-B Emblem souvenir version. 

This patch was collected in a set of other 3" patches, also dissimilar from "original" A-B Emblem issues. 

I am going to tag this collection with the "apollounk2" tag. 

However, it appears this may be a Cape Kennedy Medals version, based on the bag another similar patch was found in. Does that mean the rest of "apollounk1" is CKM? Time will tell.
