Description

    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown Embroidered Mission Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified. A 4" diameter patch in red and blue, trimmed and bordered in gold. Cernan has signed on the verso: "Flown/ on ASTP/ Gene Cernan". This mission was the last of the Apollo series and the first joint U.S./Soviet space flight where an Apollo spacecraft with a crew of three (Stafford, Brand, Slayton) docked with a Soyuz craft with a crew of two aboard (Leonov, Kubasov). Excellent condition.

    This lot is accompanied by: two photos of Cernan with this very patch including one of him signing it; a photo of mission CMP Vance Brand holding the patch; and a certificate of authenticity from Novaspace Galleries signed by Cernan, stating (in part) "...that this Apollo-Soyuz mission patch was flown aboard that historic flight in 1975."
