Apollo 11

Apollo 12 >

There are excellent photos that show the Apollo 11 crew in the mobile quarantine facility after the flight with an embroidered mission patch attached to their blue flight suits.

The patches are identifiable from these photos (e.g. in KSC-69PC-429 shown to the right) as being the so-called Biological Isolation Garment (or BIG) patch design.

Things get a little puzzling, however, when you look at closely at photos of the crew wearing the famous Biological Isolation Garments.

If you look at the detail on the left of the crew stepping out of the recovery helicopter onto the deck of the U.S.S. Hornet on their way to the mobile quarantine facility there is in fact no mission patch to be seen.

Where you might expect the patch to be there is just a plain dark circle.

Luckily, the story of what happened to the mysterious BIG patches is recounted by Buzz Aldrin himself in "Return to Earth" - "Just before we left the helicopter we ripped the Apollo 11 insignias off the isolation garments and handed them to the helicopter's crew. It was spontaneous and a way of saying thanks".

The dark patches on the BIGs in the photo above are actually circles of velcro, to which the mission patches were attached.

In one of the photos of the crew wearing the Biological Isolation Garments in the recovery dinghy before they boarded the helicopter it's just about possible to make out the mission patch in place on the Biological Isolation Garments of one of the crew members.

The Crew Patch

Patch id:

Apollo 11 Crew Patch

Worn by crew? This patch design was worn by the crew on their Biological Isolation Garments at recovery time and on their post-flight blue jump suits.
Flown? Yes. Examples were carried on the flight as souvenirs.
Manufacturer: Texas Art Embroidery
Distribution: Limited to NASA and the crew
Dimensions: 4" / 104mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Extremely rare. Maybe 4 to 5 sold per year.
Value: Examples have sold recently for $420 to $710[1].
Notes: The Crew Patch is a very accurate rendition of the mission insignia, making it easy to identify. One reason this patch looks so close to the original artwork is because it was executed in no less than thirteen (possibly even fourteen) distinct colors of thread. This is compared to a maximum of eight different colors used in the vast majority of embroidered patches.

I produced a high quality replica of the Apollo 11 Crew Patch in 2013 which is detailed below. Also, it's worth noting that a few original examples of the Crew Patch from the collection of Apollo 11 astronaut Mike Collins are available for sale at Astronaut Central.

Other Embroidered Mission Patches

Patch id:

AB Emblem patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Sold as souvenirs.
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $10-20.
Notes: The back of the AB patch in predominantly black.
Patch id:

Lion Brothers patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Was available commercially.
Dimensions: 4" / 102mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Examples sell for around $30-40.
Notes: The Lion Brothers patch has a different font and details (e.g. the landmasses on the Earth) from the crew version. In addition, the background is dark blue rather than the black of the crew patch. Note that a rare plastic backed prototype version exists.
Patch id:

AB Emblem early 'Green Moon' patch

[AS11ABE]
Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: LAB Emblem
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black velvet or black twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon.
Value: Examples currently sell for around $20 to $40[3].
Notes: This vintage bare cloth backed patch with a distinctively greenish lunar surface is apparently the first design to have been produced by AB Emblem. It is commonly seen in small embroidered commemorative presentations produced for the Needle Painters Guild.

The version shown here has a velvety background but it also exists with a twill cloth background [AS11ABE2].

UPDATE: A couple of examples have surfaced recently which have a plastic coating on the reverse. We can only speculate as the explanation for these, but perhaps they are from a run made to the same pattern some years later.

Patch id:

Lion Brothers 'orange border' variant patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Was available commercially.
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Uncommon.
Value: Examples generally sell for around $75-218[7]
Notes:

This uncommon variant of the Lion Brothers patch has orange thread instead of yellow in the border and the beak and feet of the eagle. In addition, the blue detailing on the lunar surface and the eagle's tail present in the regular Lion Brothers version is replaced by mid grey thread.

A further variant exists which is identical to the regular LB patch (with yellow beak, eye and feet, and pale blue detailing on the lunar surface) but with an orange border. This was likely just an experimental prototype as it introduces an extra thread color without removing any others.

Patch id:

Voyager Emblems patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Voyager Emblems
Distribution: Produced privately in 1969.
Dimensions: 4" / 104mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare (510 produced).
Value: Examples were recently offered at $28.50[4].
Notes: The Voyage Emblems patch is easily recognized by its very fine detail. It was apparently a privately ordered run of 510 patches, produced in November 1969.
Until recently examples of this patch was very hard to find, but 100 examples were listed for sale in mid 2011 at $28.50 each, of which 68 were sold in a month. A further 50 examples were then listed at $42.50, of which 5 examples sold. Presumably this was unsold stock from the original order. A later individual sale from the same person fetched $21 in open auction.
Patch id:

Lion Brothers 3½" patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Supplied to NASA
Dimensions: 3½" / 90mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare.
Value: Examples have sold for around $25-$50.[9]
Notes: This 3½" patch was produced by Lion Brothers to accompany the set of four mission speciality patches detailed below.

Note that this photo of unknown origin on the Retro Space Images Apollo 11 disc shows a set of Lion Brothers speciality patches which includes two 3½" variants at top center (Masonic symbol) and lower center ("1st Lunar Landing") that I have not seen before. Given the absence of any examples on the market it is possible that designs these were pre-production samples which never went into full production.

UPDATE: I have now seen an example of the 3½" Masonic symbol patch sealed in its original cellophane packaging, as is often the case with the regular patches. This implies that these patches did indeed go into production, although how many were produced and how they were distributed remains a mystery.

Patch id:

Dallas Cap & Emblem 'Grumman' patch [previously AS11UNK1]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Dallas Cap & Emblem
Distribution: Apparently produced as a memento for Grumman employees.
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Examples have sold recently for between $15 and $99[5]
Notes: This patch is very similar to the AB Emblem Apollo 11 patch but was apparently produced by Dallas Cap & Emblem. The landmasses on the Earth are a dark olive colour and the back of the patch is predominantly white. It is sometimes referred to as the 'Grumman' Apollo 11 patch as it appears frequently in the collections of former Grumman employees.
Patch id:

Lion Brothers 3" speciality patches

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Supplied to NASA
Dimensions: 3" / 78mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce to rare.
Value: Examples have sold for between $6 and $80, depending on the version.[8]
Notes: For the Apollo 11 mission, Lion Brothers produced a set of 3" commemorative patches for NASA to cover the following specialities : Mission Support (shown above), Launch Team, Recovery Fleet, and Bird Watcher. The Bird Watcher patches are by far the most common, with the other three versions fairly rare.

Note that this photo of unknown origin on the Retro Space Images Apollo 11 disc shows a set of Lion Brothers speciality patches which includes a variant of the Launch Team patch with darker thread (likely colored) than the normal version. Given the absence of any examples on the market it is possible this design was pre-production sample that never went into full production.

Patch id:

Universal Commemorative patch

[AS11UC1]
Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Universal Commemorative of Los Angeles, CA
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 102mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Examples have sold recently for between $16 and $78[6]
Notes: This vintage patch has fairly crude artwork compared with some of the other versions. At least two other variants seem to have been produced.
Patch id:

Space Spin-Off Ltd. patch (was [AS11UNK5])

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Space Spin-Off Ltd.
Distribution: UK mail-in offer
Dimensions: Approx. 3¾" / 95mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue cloth. Stitched border, cut edge.
Scarcity: Unknown.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This patch was offered to readers of Look-in magazine and Countdown magazine in the UK in 1972, and was part of a set manufactured by Space Spin-Off Ltd. The crude design appears to be based on the AB Emblem 3" patch, but executed on thin blue cloth (not twill) with a cut edge.
Patch id:

Universal Commemorative patch variant

[AS11UC2]
Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Universal Commemorative of Los Angeles, CA
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 102mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This appears to be a variant of the regular Universal Commemorative patch.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK6]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown.
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: Approx. 4" / 102mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue cloth.
Scarcity: Unknown.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This design looks to be a crude copy of the old 'green moon' AB Emblem patch.
Patch id:

Universal Commemorative patch variant

[AS11UC3]
Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Universal Commemorative of Los Angeles, CA
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This appears to be another variant of the regular Universal Commemorative patch.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK9]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 102mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge.
Scarcity: Scarce
Value: Unknown
Notes: This is an interesting recent discovery which at first glance looks to be the AS11UNK1 'Grumman' patch. In fact although the design is apparently the same this patch is partially embroidered on blue twill whilst the AS11UNK1 is fully-embroidered. I believe that the distinctive black anchor threads at the bottom of the reverse of the patch prove that it was made by the same manufacturer.
It is possible that this was a pre-production sample and that for the full production run the fully-embroidered option [AS11UNK1] was chosen.
This patch was first identified alongside examples of AS9UNK2, AS10UNK2 and AS12UNK8, implying they also share a common manufacturer.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK10]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4⅛" / 105mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge without tail (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce
Value: Unknown[10]
Notes: Although the design is similar to the AB Emblem patch this patch has a distinctive color scheme with very dull metallic gold thread used for the outer border and "APOLLO 11" text. It also has a very wide inner blue border and a white backing reminiscent of the 'Grumman' patch.
Given how close the artwork is to the AB Emblem patch (particularly the eagle and the crater details) it seems likely that the patch design was copied from the AB Emblem patch rather than being based on the mission insignia artwork.
It's actually possible this patch is a later production rather than one from the Apollo era as the back appears to have a thing coating of some kind but it's still worth noting here as it is not typically modern in appearance.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK11]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 104mm
Type: Partially embroidered on dark blue velvet. Merrowed edge without tail (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce
Value: Unknown
Notes: This apparently vintage patch is easily recognised by the exposed velvet backing cloth and the use of silver thread on the lunar surface and at the base of the eagle's tail.
Patch id:

Crew Patches replica

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Available exclusively from my Crew Patches store.
Dimensions: 4" / 104mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Small production run
Value: On sale at $15
Notes: This is a high quality replica of the rare Apollo 11 crew patch, produced for me by AB Emblem in mid 2013.

These patches are not available via regular retail outlets, or from AB Emblem directly. If you want to purchase one or more of these patches please go to the Crew Patches Store page.

Embroidered Apollo 11 Commemorative Patches

Patch id:

First Lunar Landing of Mankind [AS11FLL1]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Likely AB Emblem
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4⅛" / 105mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed border with tail.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples tend to sell in the $5 to $10 range.
Notes: This patch commemorating the first lunar landing of mankind was likely produced by AB Emblem. The design shows the year but not the date, and also excludes any mention of the mission, making it valid even if the Apollo 11 mission failed to land but Apollo 12 succeeded. This strongly implies that the design was produced in the first half of 1969 before the Apollo 11 mission flew.
Later remakes of the patch show the date in white text under the year, but the earlier versions usually have red text under the year which reads "© 1969" followed by two initials that I am unable to distinguish clearly, but possibly "NP". Like the 'green moon' Apollo 11 mission patch this design was used in small commemoritive embroidered Needle Painters Guild presentations.
An example without any red text sold recently for $27[11].
Patch id:

First Lunar Landing of Mankind [AS11FLL2]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4⅛" / 105mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed border with no tail (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce
Value: Unknown
Notes: This version of the first lunar landing of mankind commemorative design is much less common than the version shown on the left. It adds the month of the Apollo 11 mission to the left of the LEM, implying it was produced after the launch date was fixed. The selvedged border indicates it was not produced by AB Emblem.
Patch id:

Apollo 11 On The Moon [AS11OTM]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 99mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare
Value: Unknown.
Notes: I've only seen one example to-date of this Apollo 11 commemorative patch. The artwork is somewhat crude and the color scheme distinctly odd but it's none-the-less an interesting vintage bare cloth back patch.
Patch id:

Apollo XI commemorative [AS11AXI]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 100mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This Apollo 11 commemorative patch from an unknown manufacturer features an astronaut in what has been aptly described as a "Cat in the Hat" pose. Not a great success from an artistic point of view but it is a bare cloth back vintage commemorative patch.
Patch id:

Apollo 11 'bootprints' [AS11UNK8]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 3" x 4¾" / 75 x 120mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge.
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Unknown
Notes: This patch was likely produced to commemorate the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK7]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Possibly Lion Brothers
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 104mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Very rare
Value: Only four examples have sold in recent years fetching between $150 and $582[12]
Notes: Judging by the details of the border, and by the characteristic pattern of jump stitches on the reverse (the long threads running from the center area to the border), this vintage Apollo 11 commemorative patch may well have been manufactured by Lion Brothers. I've seen very few examples so it's possible that it was never put into full production.
UPDATE: A recently sold example was framed with a Lion Brothers Apollo 12 patch apparently acquired at the same time. Although circumstantial this does lend support to the idea that this patch is a Lion Brothers product.
Patch id:

[AS11UNK7] Randy Hunt replica

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Randy Hunt
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx 4" / 104mm
Type: Unknown
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Unknown
Notes: This patch, sold in the Dec 1, 2007 Aurora auction which included many Randy Hunt replicas, is likely a Randy Hunt replica of the AS11UNK7 patch shown on the left. The auction listing image is very poor but it seems possible to make out some distinct differences in the design such as the size of the hatch, the colors on the Earth, and the shape of the darker blobs of detail on the lunar surface.
