STS-87 - 4" - Eagle Crest Emblem

STS-87 was a Space Shuttle mission launched from Launch Complex 39B of the Kennedy Space Center on 19 November 1997. It was the 88th flight of the Space Shuttle, and the 24th flight of Columbia. The mission goals were to conduct experiments using the United States Microgravity Payload (USMP-4), conduct two EVAs, and to deploy the SPARTAN-201 experiment. This mission marked the first time an EVA was performed from Columbia. An EVA from Columbia was originally planned for STS-5 in 1982, but was cancelled due to spacesuit problems. It also marked the first EVA conducted by a Japanese astronaut, Takao Doi.

STS-72 - 4" - Eagle Crest Emblem

STS-72 was a Space Shuttle Endeavour mission to capture and return to Earth a Japanese microgravity research spacecraft known as Space Flyer Unit (SFU). The mission launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida on 11 January 1996.
STS-72, the 74th flight of the Space Shuttle program and the 10th of the orbiter Endeavour was launched at 4:41AM EST January 11, 1996 after a brief delay due to communication issues. The nighttime launch window was in support of the mission's primary objective, the capture and return to Earth of a Japanese microgravity research spacecraft known as Space Flyer Unit (SFU). The 3,577 kilograms (7,890 lb) SFU was launched by Japan's National Space Development Agency (NASDA) from Tanegashima Space Center in Japan on 18 March 1995 aboard a Japanese H-II rocket (HII-3), and spent ten months in orbit conducting automated research in materials science, biology, engineering, and astronomy. Mission Specialist Koichi Wakata operated the orbiter's remote manipulator system arm on flight day three to pluck SFU from orbit. Both of the satellites's solar arrays had to be jettisoned prior to retrieval when sensors indicated improper latching following their retraction. This jettison procedure had been incorporated in preflight training as a contingency in the event of such an occurrence. The canisters housing the arrays were jettisoned 12 minutes apart as Endeavour and the SFU traveled across Africa on the thirtieth orbit of the mission. The contingency procedure delayed the capture of the satellite by about an hour and half. Once in Endeavour's payload bay, the satellite's internal batteries were bypassed following connection of a remotely operated electrical cable to the side of the satellite.

The Eagle Crest Emblem STS-72 version has slightly more detail than the A-B Emblem version, particularly with regards to the astronaut.

Apollo 9 - 3 1/2" - Eagle Crest Emblem

It is obvious from the quality of their lettering and other detail that this company is capable of very detailed embroidery, however, they are merely (and poorly) reprooducing existing, low-quality 3" patches instead of making improvements. There is so much more detail you could add to the Saturn V on the Apollo 9 patch. The tells here are the odd extended LEM rocket nozzle and the rectangular window on the Command Module.  Not to mention the horrible "SCOTTSCHWEICKART".

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.

This variation can be spotted with its 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.

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.
