    Ex. John Young

    Apollo 10 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia "Post-Flight" Crew Patch Directly from the John W. Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. This 4" x 4.25" shield-shaped patch flew with crewmembers Stafford, Young, and Cernan aboard the Apollo 10 mission to the moon, May 18-26, 1969. The design for this insignia shows a large, three-dimensional "X" sitting on the moon with a command module orbiting as a lunar module flies up to it from its pass over the lunar surface. Earth is visible in the background. Inside a medium blue border is "APOLLO" at top and the crew surnames below. It is bordered in gold thread. The "post-flight" refers to the fact that this flown patch is identical to the ones worn on the crew's post-flight jump suits. A rare opportunity to acquire the two different crew patches (see adjacent lot) in one auction. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Young's widow, Susy Young. It reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 10 'Post-Flight' Embroidered Mission patch that accompanies this letter was flown to the Moon aboard the Apollo 10 mission May 18-26, 1969. This patch has been a part of John W. Young's personal collection since returning from the mission. The flag package is sealed with a holographic tamper-proof label, #1745107, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number if removed."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
