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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
