STS-1 - 4" - Lion Brothers - Plastic Back

This patch varies from the common STS-1 patch as it has three colors of thread used in the flame of the shuttle. Scarce patch.
The Lion Brothers' version is readily identifiable by the two blue patches on the wings rather than a flag and "USA".
This version has a plastic backing instead of the more common cloth backing.

Apollo 17 - 4" - Lion Brothers

Once again, LionBrothers version of the patch exceeds the quality of the more common A-B Emblem souvenir version. Their trademark hallmark appears as an upside down "17" on the bottom of Apollo's neck. White thread used on the Eagle with a bare cloth back. The light blue border is more faithful to the original, though they used a more appealing radial border.

Apollo 14 - 4" - Lion Brothers

The Lion Brother's Apollo 14 patch, like many others, closely resembles the crew version and is a better rendition than the A-B Emblem issue. 

It is a cloth-backed patch. This is the first Lion Brother patch with a hidden hallmark and it is very difficult to make out, it is sewn with a single width of thread.
