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.

Apollo 16 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Fully-embroidered. Decent detail for a 3" patch.

A second variation has been identified here without a blue border on the yellow delta and lacking a red border on the shield. Ever so slightly oblong vertically. I was not sure if this was intentional, but a second copy was also oblong.

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.

Apollo 15 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Fully-embroidered. A very rough moon crater pattern. The black "XV" stitching is very difficult to make out, probably overlooked as an intentional symbol from the official version. A second variation has been identified here without black border on the white delta. Ever so slightly oblong vertically. I was not sure if this was intentional, but a second copy was also oblong.

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

Apollo 8 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Apollo 8 3" patch. This patch is unique in the stitching of the moon with an odd secondary crescent. Additionally, the names aren't as spread out along the flight path as other 3" Apollo 8 patches where the "B" in Borman and "S" in Anders are almost horizontal. Additionally, unlike most other 3" versions, this one is fully embroidered where others are twill.

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.
