    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown Embroidered Mission Crew Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed and Certified. This handsome 4" patch, with the mission slogan "Ex Luna, Scientia" (from the moon, knowledge), flew on the almost-disastrous Apollo 13 mission to the moon and back. Lovell has signed the patch on the verso: "Flown/ James Lovell" with good contrast. The dramatic flight was the basis for a major motion picture in 1995, where Tom Hanks portrayed Commander Lovell. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 13 embroidered mission patch that accompanies this letter was flown with me aboard the mission Apollo 11-17, 1970. This patch is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."

    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.
