Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell. 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, January 31-February 9, 1971. 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.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Dr. Mitchell on his personal letterhead, stating (in part): "This letter is to certify that the accompanying Apollo 14 embroidered crew patch was carried into lunar orbit aboard the spacecraft Kittyhawk in my personal preference kit (PPK) during the Apollo 14 mission to the moon... The mission resulted in bringing back over 95 pounds of lunar rocks and soil, plus hundreds of photo of the lunar regolith and setting up science experiments and a telemetry station that broadcast data to Earth from the data collection instruments for the following fourteen years before being shut down."

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
