Apollo 13 - 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 13 - 4" - Crew version

This is the version of the patch that was issued to the Apollo 13 crew, as well as some limited commercial release. Distinct crater detail, the black gaps in the rays of the sun and curved sun stitching pattern sets it apart from the Lion Brothers version. This was made by A-B Emblem.

Gemini 12 - 3" - unknown maker

 

This version lacks the red vertical line on the capsule.

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.

Until the manufacturer is found, I will refer to this set as geminiunk1.

Apollo 8 - 3" - Cape Kennedy Medals

Apollo 8 3" patch. This patch is unique in the stitching of the moon with an odd secondary crescent. Additionally, the names aren't as spread out along the flight path as other 3" Apollo 8 patches where the "B" in Borman and "S" in Anders are almost horizontal. Additionally, unlike most other 3" versions, this one is fully embroidered where others are twill.

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.

Apollo 13 - 3 1/4" - Cape Kennedy Medals

 

Cape Kennedy Medals 3 1/4" Apollo 13. Packaged with collection that included Cape Kennedy Medals 3 1/4" Apollo 9 and Apollo 7. 

I am making a leap that this version is CKM due to the unique 3 1/4" size as well as the associate with at known CKM issue Apollo 9 in the same set.
