Freedom 7-II - MA-10 - Unknown maker

It appears that this patch was produced as an expansion to the original Eagle One Aerospace Mercury patch series.

Mercury-Atlas 10 (MA-10) was a cancelled early manned space mission, which would have been the last flight in NASA's Mercury program. It was planned as a three-day extended mission, to launch in late 1963; the spacecraft, Freedom 7-II, would have been flown by Alan Shepard, a veteran of the suborbital Mercury-Redstone 3 mission in 1961. However, it was cancelled after the success of the one-day Mercury-Atlas 9 mission in May 1963, to allow NASA to focus its efforts on the more advanced two-man Gemini program.

Mercury - Unknown Maker Set

This page is a reference for a vintage set of Mercury patches (that are also linked to a matching Gemni set). They are cloth backed. 

Identifying features:

Double Serif on Mercury 6/Friendship 7 "F"

This set could have several evolutions. Images attached to this indicate that there are several versions of the Mercury 9 patch that have either a blue border around the silver star, or a silver border around the star, or no border at all. 

The other patches are virtually identical.

The association of this set with a quirky Gemini set in multiple places as well as a set of Apollo patches identified as made by Cape Kennedy Medals indicates that this set may be from them as well.

This variation is unusual for it's black border.

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.
