Description

    Apollo 9 Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, Signed and Certified. 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. Schweickart has signed on the verso: "Flown/ on Apollo 9/ Rusty/ Schweickart". Excellent condition.
