    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown Embroidered Mission Crew Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell. This handsome 4" patch with the mission slogan "Ex Luna, Scientia" (from the moon, knowledge) flew on the almost-disastrous Apollo 13 mission to the moon and back. The dramatic flight was the basis for a major motion picture in 1995, where Tom Hanks portrayed Commander Lovell. Lovell has certified and signed the patch: "Flown Apollo 13". Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that this embroidered Mission Patch was one of several patches in my personal preference kit on board Apollo 13. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This Mission Patch is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
