Description

    Apollo 9 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jim McDivitt, Signed and Certified, with Signed COA. This 3.375" diameter patch 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. The "D" in McDivitt is filled in red to signify that this was the fourth in the alphabetic sequence of pre-moon landing missions. 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. McDivitt has signed on the verso: "Jim McDivitt/ Flown on/ Apollo 9" in green ink. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Certificate of Authenticity from McDivitt on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I certify that this Apollo 9 crew patch was flown onboard Apollo 9 on her flight from March 3-13, 1969."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
