Apollo 15 - 3 1/2" - Cape Kennedy Medals

This is an intriguing Apollo 15 patch. It appears to be of vintage issue with a cloth back. It is fully-embroidered. The owner said it was 4" in diameter but I am skeptical, I believe it is no more than 3 1/2" in diameter. The red chevron has black outlining. The "XV" does not appear to be rendered, but treated as crater detail instead. There is also a version of this patch with no black outline on the chevrons.

Apollo 15 - 4" - Crew version

This patch was the version issued to the crew. While outwardly similar to the A-B Souvenir version, there are some distinct identifiers, namely the "XV" is in silver thread and the designer, Emilio Pucci, has a hidden initial below blue chevron.

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. 

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.
