A beautiful 4" diameter patch made by Texas Art Embroidery as worn by the crew on their Biological Isolation Garments. The familiar design, originally by Collins (and modified by NASA), depicts an eagle carrying an olive branch in his claws about to land on the moon. It is boldly signed on the verso in block letters: "Michael Collins". Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from Astronaut Central signed in facsimile by Kim Poor stating, in full: "Rare Apollo 11 'bio-garment' patch. This was the finest Apollo 11 patch produced, but was worn only for a short time, while the astronauts were transferred from the recovered Apollo 11 capsule to the isolation facility. Signed verso by Michael Collins, from his collection."
