Skylab I - 3" - Wolf-Brown

Skylab 1 (also SL-2 and SLM-1) was the first manned mission to Skylab, the first U.S. orbital space station. The mission was launched on a Saturn IB rocket and carried a three-person crew to the station. The name Skylab 2 also refers to the vehicle used for that mission. The Skylab 2 mission established a record for human spaceflight duration. 

Is is possible that the Wolf-Brown patches are repackacked A-B Emblem patches.

Apollo 12 - 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 11, Apollo 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 12 - 4" - Willabee & Ward

This is the Apollo 12 patch featured in the Willabee and Ward space emblem collection. It closely resembles the "quarantine crew patch", however, the crew patch was not made by A-B Emblem, but Dallas Cap and Emblem. The back anchor threads differs widely from the standard A-B Emblem souvenir version

This Apollo 12 patch is the most commonly seen 3" version from A-B Emblem. They seemed to have been a bit loose over time with the colors of threads used on the lunar surface as great variations between issues can be seen, often directly inversing the colors from one to the other. 

Twill background.

Gemini 11 - 3" - Dallas Cap & Emblem

 

The agena on this patch is particularly elongated and the stars are stitched very distinctively.

Collected as a set with other 3" Mercury and Gemini patches. This set of patches, while at first glance appear to be regular A-B Emblem 3" souvenir versions, actually have some distinct oddities that set them apart. They all have cheesecloth backs.

Apollo 13 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Fully embroidered with radial stiching, which is unique for a 3" version of this patch. Stars resemble the 4" A-B Emblem version. Very rough stitching for the sail shadows.

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.

Gemini 11 - Eagle One Aerospace

This Gemini XI patch is designed like the actual patch which the astronauts wore into space. Souvenir versions lack the detail or the star between the astronaut's names. The patch is readily distinguished by the star on the astronaut's chest and jaggy appearance of the Agena unit.
