Apollo 14 - 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 11Apollo 12, Apollo 13 and Apollo 14 patches. There may be others, but these are the only one's I have seen. Had these not been in their original packaging, they would probably have not been able to be associated with Lion Brothers.

Apollo 14 - 3 1/2" - Eagle One Emblem

While not the worst reproduction of an Apollo 14 patch, the vacuum-sealed back and modern stitching aren't very authentic.

Apollo 14 - 4" - Lion Brothers

The Lion Brother's Apollo 14 patch, like many others, closely resembles the crew version and is a better rendition than the A-B Emblem issue. 

It is a cloth-backed patch. This is the first Lion Brother patch with a hidden hallmark and it is very difficult to make out, it is sewn with a single width of thread.

Apollo 14 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Fully embroidered, unique for a 3" version. Very thick stitching in the trail for the astronaut symbol. Overall, good detail for this size.  Rust colored "Apollo 14" and border.

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. Leading candidate is Cape Kennedy Medals based on the Apollo 17 patch in this set being a CKM patch.
