    Description

    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Crew Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission U.S. Commander Tom Stafford, with Signed Letter of Authenticity. A 4" diameter patch by AB Emblem as worn and flown by the crew on this international mission of unprecedented cooperation between the two superpowers. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed presentation LOA on Stafford, Burke and Hecker letterhead reading, in full: "Displayed with this letter is an Apollo Soyuz cloth emblem carried into space on the historic Apollo Soyuz mission during July 15 to 24, 1975. Illustrated are both Apollo and Soyuz space vehicles just prior to docking with the earth below and a brilliant sun above. The last names of all Apollo and Soyuz crew members are along the outer rim. The astronaut names are spelled in English and the cosmonaut names are spelled in Russian. After both vehicles were launched on July 15, we docked together on July 17. We conducted some 44 hours of joint operations including exchanging gifts to be held by each country upon our return, certificates confirming this historic event, plus performing scientific experiments inside our docking module. We undocked with Soyuz and two days later on July 21, Soyuz returned to earth. My crew in Apollo returned to earth on July 24."

    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.
