Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed. This 4" x 3.5" oval mission insignia patch was designed by Jean Beaulieu of the Kennedy Space Center graphics art department. It depicts a NASA Astronaut Pin flying to the moon and was carried aboard the Command Module Kitty Hawk during the nine-day flight. The surnames of the crewmembers, "Shepard Roosa Mitchell" are listed beneath the graphic, with "APOLLO 14" above, all on a gold thread background. Excellent condition.

    Dr. Mitchell has signed this patch on the verso (fair contrast).

    Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Dr. Mitchell on his personal letterhead stating (in part): "This certifies that the accompanying embroidered mission patch (signed on the back by Edgar Mitchell) was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) on Apollo 14 from January 31, 1971 to February 9, 1971 during the Apollo 14 mission... The total mission time was nine days plus one minute from liftoff at Cape Kennedy to splash down in the Pacific Ocean near Pago Pago. We set up scientific experiments at our landing site, explored nearby Cone Crater, took hundreds of photographs, and returned with 98 pounds of lunar material for examination by scientists on Earth."
