    Description

    Jerry L. Ross's Ultra-Rare "Mach 25" Embroidered Patch Directly from His Personal Collection, with Signed Photo and Certificate of Authenticity. Offered here is a highly desirable Mach 25 patch, 3.125" x 2" overall. These patches, which were astronaut-designed and originated, were only presented to shuttle astronauts after their first mission (the shuttle is the only vehicle capable of flying 25 times the speed of sound). They have been reproduced, but originals are only available from flown astronauts. Only the second example Heritage has encountered. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed COA by Jerry Ross on his letterhead reading, in full: "The accompanying Space Shuttle Mach 25 patch is from my personal collection. [signed] Jerry L. Ross. Mission Specialist on STS-61B, 27, 37, 55, 74, 88, 110"
