This is a commemorative patch for Elliott See and Charles Bassett, the original prime crew of Gemini 9 who perished in a T-38 crash.
This reproduction was made by A-B Emblem in conjunction with Gene Dorr as a series of historically accurate crew patch reproductions.
Common souvenir version of the Gemini 9 patch from A-B Emblem.
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.
This is a quality reproduction patch,unknown maker. There are no names and the bottom point is more pronounced.
This Eagle One Aerospace version has the name tab removed.
