    Description

    Apollo 17 Initialed Oversize Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, with COA. This 4.5" diameter patch was part of a personalized limited edition of 150 made for Cernan by AB Emblem. This differs from the standard mission patch in three ways: the larger size, a single extra star above Apollo's shoulder, and the initials "EC" hidden in the blue background next to it. Seldom offered. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Novaspace Certificate of Authenticity from the "Gene Cernan Garage Sale" stating (in part): "This item is from my personal collection of memorabilia from my career as a NASA astronaut..." Note: the signature on the COA is a facsimile.

    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.
