Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Patch Analysis

Thanks to Wikipedia's extremely high resolution photo of the ASTP crews, its possible to examine the 4" Apollo-Soyuz patches that the crew members are wearing. It's evident that the US team have 4" patches affixed to their training jumpsuits while Leonov and Kubasov have theirs temporarily attached. Kubasov's is not in the same position as Leonovs and Leonov's is actual placed over the smaller Apollo-Soyuz patch he already had affixed to his jumpsuit:

Apollo-Soyuz Test Project - 4" - Cape Kennedy Medals

This Apollo-Soyuz Test Project patch is possibly part of a set of modern reproduction Apollo patches produced by Cape Kennedy Medals. It appears to be identical to the A-B Emblem version, however minute, subtle differences can be found. The gold stars appear to be sewn on top of the red field rather than being holes in the red field as in the A-B Emblem version.

Found in auctions adjacent to other Cape Kennedy Medal Apollo patches.

Apollo-Soyuz Test Project - 4" - US Troop Gear

This is a very crude reproduction of the ASTP patch. Obvious faults are the lack of Cyrillic characters, substituting latin characters for the Soviet crew: "JIEOHOB" and "KYGACOB". There is a strange space in "SLAY TON" as well. Other details, such as the Soyuz and CM are remarkably passable.

Apollo-Soyuz Test Project - 4" - Unknown maker

This patch at first glance appears to be very similar to the A-B Emblem souvenir version, however, it is slightly different, notably: narrower gap between "Slayton" and "Leonov". The gold border area is a horizontal stitching rather than a radial stitch. The gold stars on the red field are embroidered rather than just unstitched areass in the red. The back is vacuum sealed and the embroidery style is the classic rather than modern type, so it is not a newer reproduction.
