    Description

    Space Shuttle Challenger (STS-6) Flown Mission Patch Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Paul Weitz, Signed and Certified. STS-6 was the sixth overall flight in the Space Shuttle program and the first of ten flights for the Challenger. Commander Weitz's crew consisted of Pilot Karol J. Bobko and two Mission Specialists- Donald H. Peterson and F. Story Musgrave- on the Earth orbital mission, April 4-9, 1983. This six-sided embroidered mission insignia patch, 4.5" x 4" overall, has been signed by Weitz on the verso: "Flown on/ STS-6. From/ my personal/ collection/ Paul Weitz/ CDR" (fair contrast). Excellent condition.

    This lot is accompanied by a photo of Weitz holding this patch and a signed, illustrated letter of authenticity from Weitz, stating (in part): "This is to certify that the accompanying cloth mission patch is from my personal collection of NASA memorabilia, and flew with me aboard my STS-6 shuttle mission..."

    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.
