STS-35 - 4" A-B Emblem revised

The original STS-35 artwork differed significantly from the A-B Emblem STS-35" souvenir patch. A number of close reproductions by Cape Kennedy Medals and others have come close, but not matching the original prototype. In 2016, A-B Emblem, when stock of the older STS-35 patch ran out, produced a new version on their newer machines that more faithfully reflects the original artwork and prototype. This is the version currently on sale at their web site (as of September 2016).

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.

Skylab Rescue Patch v2

Rescuing astronauts from Skylab was possible in the most likely emergency circumstances. The crew could use the CSM to quickly return to Earth if the station suffered serious damage. If the CSM failed, the spacecraft and Saturn IB for the next Skylab mission would have been launched with two astronauts to retrieve the crew; given Skylab's ample supplies, its residents would have been able to wait up to several weeks for the rescue mission.

This is a replica patch produced by Randy Hunt.

STS-41B - Swissartex

 

STS-41-B was the tenth NASA Space Shuttle mission and the fourth flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger. It launched on 3 February 1984 and landed on 11 February. Following STS-9, the flight numbering system for the Space Shuttle program was changed. Thus, the next flight, instead of being designated STS-11, became STS-41-B; the original successor to STS-9, STS-10, was cancelled due to payload delays.

Designed by artist Robert McCall, the eleven stars in the blue field symbolize the mission's original designation as STS-11. The left panel shows the deployment of a satellite, and the right panel shows an astronaut using the Manned Maneuvering Unit.
