Friendship 7 - MA-6 - 4" - Eagle One Aerospace

Eagle One Aerospace produced an exclusive set of Project Mercury crew patches in the early 90's. 5 sets were produced and mounted on a poster, another 25-50 were produced as an unmounted set. Each patch has the hallmark initials of their respective crewman. They faithfully render the capsule artwork and are often considered to be the proper mercury crew patch as opposed to the common, later souvenir patches from A-B Emblem and others.

STS-95 - 4" - A-B Emblem

STS-95 was a Space Shuttle Discovery mission launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida on 29 October 1998. It was the 25th flight of Discovery and the 92nd mission flown since the start of the Space Shuttle program in April 1981. It was a highly publicized mission due to former Project Mercury astronaut and United States Senator John H. Glenn, Jr.'s return to space for his second space flight. At age 77, Glenn became the oldest person, to date, to go into space. This mission is also noted for inaugurating ATSC HDTV broadcasting in the U.S., with live coast-to-coast coverage of the launch. In another first, Spain's Pedro Duque became the first Spaniard in space.

The STS-95 patch, designed by the crew, is intended to reflect the scientific, engineering, and historic elements of the mission. The Space Shuttle Discovery is shown rising over the sunlit Earth limb, representing the global benefits of the mission science and the solar science objectives of the Spartan Satellite. The bold number '7' signifies the seven members of Discovery's crew and also represents a historical link to the original seven Mercury astronauts. The STS-95 crew member John Glenn's first orbital flight is represnted by the Friendship 7 capsule. The rocket plumes symbolize the three major fields of science represented by the mission payloads: microgravity material science, medical research for humans on Earth and in space, and astronomy.

Mercury 6 - 3" - Dallas Cap & Emblem

This 3" Mercury 7 patch can be identified double serif on the bottom of the "F" in Friendship.

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.
