    Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-51-D) Flown Mission Patch Worn by Mission Specialist S. David Griggs and Directly from his Personal Collection. This flown and worn embroidered mission insignia patch, 5.25" x 4" overall, was mounted to a printed sheet with the text "Man-Systems Division Presents to: S. DAVID GRIGGS MISSION SPECIALIST" above, and "This original patch worn during your STS-51D Mission" below. This sheet is matted and framed to 14" x 12". STS-51-D was the sixteenth overall flight in the shuttle program and the fourth flight for the Discovery orbiter. The crew of seven that included U.S. Senator Jake Garn (R-Utah) orbited the Earth 110 times, April 12-19, 1985, with takeoff and landing both at the Kennedy Space Center. This was Griggs' first and only space flight; he was in training as pilot of STS-33 when tragically killed in the crash of a vintage WWII plane he was piloting. Frame a bit scratched, excellent condition overall; the patch is loose within the frame, easily repaired.
