Apollo 16 - 4" - Crew Replica - A-B Emblem

A version of the A-B Emblem was recently identified as the type as word by the crew after their flight. The patch is identified by having darker thread used for the crater details on the front. While hard to distinguish from the front, it is readily observed on the back side where the two colors of grey are very obvious. This patch was later made in a replica form for the Willabee and Ward patch set, with a plastic back.

STS-1 - 3 1/2" - A-B Emblem V2

STS-1 was the first orbital flight of NASA's Space Shuttle program. Space Shuttle Columbia launched on 12 April 1981, and returned to Earth on 14 April, having orbited the Earth 37 times during its 54.5-hour mission. Columbia carried a crew of two – mission commander John W. Young and pilot Robert L. Crippen. It was the first American manned space flight since the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project on 15 July 1975. STS-1 was also the only US manned maiden test flight of a new spacecraft system, although it was the culmination of atmospheric testing of the Space Shuttle orbiter.

This version appears very similar to the standard A-B Emblem STS-1 patch, however, the wings have flaps and SRBs are more detailed and the wings lack both the USA flag and "USA" lettering. The black thread also outlines the orbiter. The patcbh is 4 3/4" high.

STS-9 (also known as STS-41A and Spacelab 1) was a NASA Space Shuttle mission which carried the first Spacelab laboratory module into orbit. Launched on 28 November 1983, it was the sixth mission of the Space Shuttle Columbia, and was Columbia's last flight until STS-61-C in January 1986.
