    APOLLO 9

    Apollo 9 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jim McDivitt, Signed and Certified, with Signed COA from Novaspace. This 3.5" diameter patch is signed on the verso in green felt tip: "Jim McDivitt/ Flown on/ Apollo 9". It depicts a Saturn V rocket orbited by a lunar module and a command/service module trailing fire against a blue background. The crew surnames are around at top and the mission name at bottom, inside a red border. Apollo 9, March 3-13, 1969, was the first space test of the complete Apollo spacecraft that included the third piece of Apollo hardware, the lunar module. Its three-man crew consisted of Commander James McDivitt, Command Module Pilot David Scott, and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed "Jim McDivitt Flown Artifact" COA from Novaspace stating: "I certify that this Apollo 9 patch was flown in space aboard that mission in 1969. It is from my personal collection and recently presented to Novaspace for dispersal to collectors of artifacts from the great "space race" and the golden era of space exploration."
