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."

    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.
