    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed, with Signed LOA. This handsome 4.625" x 4.125" oval mission insignia patch was based on a design by Jean Beaulieu of the Kennedy Space Center graphics art department. It depicts a NASA Astronaut Pin flying to the moon and this example was carried aboard the Command Module Kitty Hawk during its nine-day flight, January 31-February 9, 1971. The surnames of the crewmembers, "Shepard Roosa Mitchell," are listed beneath the graphic with "APOLLO 14" above, all on a gold thread background. Dr. Mitchell has signed on the verso: "Edgar Mitchell". Excellent.

    Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Mitchell on his personal letterhead. It reads, in part: "This letter is to certify that the accompanying Apollo 14 embroidered crew patch was carried into lunar orbit aboard the spacecraft Kittyhawk in my personal preference kit (PPK) during the Apollo 14 mission to the moon and has been in my collection since that flight."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
