Project Patches

Gemini 3 >

Although not generally worn by the astronauts at the time of the Gemini and Apollo missions the patches created for each NASA manned space project are obviously collectible in their own right. Likewise, the special patch created for the Mission Control team in 1973.

Below I try to list all the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, and Mission Control vintage patch versions identified to-date.

Mercury Project Patches

Patch id:

Mercury Project [MERUNK1] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx. 3" / 75mm wide
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Rare
Value: Examples sold recently for $40 to $122.50[1]
Notes: This patch, with its distinctive red, white and blue border, forms part of a set of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo project patches produced by an unknown manufacturer. It is not clear whether it was actually produced at the time of the Mercury program and there is no evidence that this patch was worn by the Mercury astronauts or NASA personnel.
Patch id:

Mercury Project [MERUNK2] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4 x 2¾" / 103 x 68mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with no 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare
Value: An example sold recently for $226.17[2]
Notes: This patch may be from the Mercury era, although there is no evidence of it having been worn by the Mercury astronauts or NASA personnel.

Gemini Project Patches

Patch id:

Blue Background Gemini Project variant 1 [GTPUNK1V1] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Likely limited to NASA
Dimensions: Approx 3" / 75mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Very rare.
Value: Examples sold in the last few years fetched between $442 and $670[3].
Notes: This rare and sought-after vintage version of the Gemini project patch has a blue background as opposed to the black of the more common versions.
Patch id:

Blue Background Gemini Project variant 1 replica patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Available exclusively from my Crew Patches store.
Dimensions: 3" / 75mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Limited production run.
Value: On sale at $12.
Notes: This is a high quality replica of the exceptionally rare blue backgroun Gemini project patch, produced for me by AB Emblem in mid 2012.

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.

Patch id:

Blue Background Gemini Project variant 2 [GTPUNK1V2] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Likely limited to NASA
Dimensions: Approx 3" / 75mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Very rare.
Value: Examples sold in the last few years fetched between $442 and $670[3].
Notes: This is apparently a variant of the rare blue background Gemini project patch. The lettering is somewhat bolder, although the apparent color difference with the above version may be just a question of lighting or fading due to uv exposure.
Patch id:

Gemini Project AB Emblem patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Sold as souvenirs
Dimensions: 3" / 76mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: An example sold recently for $13[4].
Notes: Although originally offered alongside the poorly-regarded 3" souvenir versions of the Gemini mission patches, this AB Emblem Gemini project patch is a good representation of the program logo. Since it is fairly scarce in vintage bare cloth back form it is quite collectible.
Patch id:

Gemini Project Dallas Cap & Emblem patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Dallas Cap & Emblem
Distribution: Was available commercially.
Dimensions: 3" / 76mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: Very similar to the AB Emblem version of the patch, the Dallas Cap & Emblem version can be identified by the fact that the extra-wide "N" in the "GEMINI" lettering and the fact that the final "I" only just extends past the base of the symbol above.
Patch id:

Gemini Project [GTPUNK4] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 3" / 78mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: Although similar in appearance to the other black background Gemini project patches this version has a selvedged border, indicating a different manufacturer. From the front it can be identified by the larger NASA text which has more marker serifs, and by the pale yellow thread of the Gemini symbol which has more curved vertical components.
Patch id:

Gemini Project [GTPUNK3] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx 3 x 3½" / 76 x 89mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Examples have sold for $89 and $151.50[5]
Notes: Although I've not seen any evidence of this unusual Gemini project patch ever having been used by NASA employees it is uncommon and therefore of some interest to collectors. The merrowed border thread has apparently been dyed to produce a red, white and blue effect. It forms part of a set of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo project patches and was thus likely produced in the Apollo era.
Patch id:

Gemini Project [GTPUNK5] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx. 3" / 78mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Unknown.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: Another black background Gemini project patch, but this one does not include the "NASA" text above the Gemini symbol making it more similar in appearance to the blue background version. The only example noted thus far was part of Deke Slayton's collection.

Embroidered Apollo Project Patches

Patch id:

Apollo Project AB Emblem souvenir patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Were sold as souvenirs.
Dimensions: Approx 3" / 75mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $1-10.
Notes: This is the AB Emblem 3" souvenir patch of the Apollo project insignia.
Patch id:

Dallas Cap & Emblem Apollo Project patch [formerly ASPUNK2]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Dallas Cap & Emblem
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 3" / 78mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Too few examples have sold recently to assess the price[6]
Notes:

This Apollo project patch, formerly identified as ASPUNK2, was apparently made by Dallas Cap & Emblem.

Among the notable differences from the AB version on the right are the distinctive NASA text with the "NA" touching the inner white border and a very small "S", the shape of the white 'hook' extending to the upper right of the Earth, and the shape of the stars forming the bar of the large central "A".

This version of the Apollo project insignia patch seems to match that worn by Bill Anders on a flight jacket in this image taken during Apollo 8 training in 1968.

Patch id:

Apollo Project AB Emblem 7¾" patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Were sold as souvenirs.
Dimensions: 7¾" / 198mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $5-20.
Notes: This is the AB Emblem 7¾" diameter version of the Apollo project insignia.
Patch id:

Dallas Cap & Emblem Apollo Project patch white border variant

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Dallas Cap & Emblem
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx. 3" / 78mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Unknown
Notes:

This white bordered variant of the Dallas Cap & Emblem Apollo project patch features on the cover a vintage brochure from the company, although I have not seen an example on the market to-date.

Patch id:

Apollo Project 'moonscape' patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Were sold as souvenirs.
Dimensions: 3" / 74mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $1-10.
Notes: This 3" patch for the Apollo project has a stylized moon as the background.
Patch id:

Apollo Project [ASPUNK1] patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx. 2¾" / 71mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Rare
Value: Examples have sold recently for $61 to $162.50[7]
Notes: This patch, with its distinctive red, white and blue border, forms part of a set of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo project patches produced by an unknown manufacturer.
Patch id:

Apollo Project 'moonscape' 4 inch patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Cut edge.
Scarcity: Scarce
Value: An example sold recently for $75[8]
Notes: At first glance this 4" patch for the Apollo project could be mistaken for an unfinished example of the 3" patch above, waiting to be trimmed-down and have a merrowed-edge applied. However, the extended black border seems to be a deliberate part of this design and the addition of blue thread in the stars and left edge of the moon also mark it out as a distinct design.

Embroidered Skylab Project Patches

Patch id:

Skylab Project AB Emblem patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Sold as souvenirs.
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $5-15.
Notes: The AB Emblem Skylab Project patch has a pale green border.
Patch id:

Skylab Project Lion Brothers patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Was available commercially.
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Scarce.
Value: Examples sell for around $15-30.
Notes: The Lion Brothers Skylab Project patch does not have a hallmark but has a different color border to the AB version. Note that a rare plastic backed prototype version of this patch exists.
Patch id:

[SLPUNK1]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Possibly Hallmark Emblems of Tampa, FLA.
Distribution: Unknown.
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare.
Value: Examples have sold for between $5 and $20[9]
Notes: This Skylab Project patch with a beige border may have been produced by Hallmark Emblems of Tampa, FLA.
Patch id:

Skylab Project Lion Brothers variant patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Lion Brothers
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Rare.
Value: Unknown.
Notes: This patch appears to be a distinct varaint of the Lion Brothers Skylab Project patch. It differs from the regular version in the use of purple thread in the CSM engine bell at lower left, and perhaps more significantly in the use of a simple horizontal pattern of fill thread in the outer border where the regular version has a radial fil pattern. Note that the pattern of long anchor threads on the back is identical in the two versions.

14 examples of this patch surfaced in early 2013 and a Lion Brothers quality control slip that accompanied the patches identified them as part of a batch of 25, although obviously this doesn't mean that only 25 were produced.

One of the 14 patches, scan here, showed a couple of distinct differences from the others, with the purple thread missing and the mid-blue fill on the Earth replaced by a very pale blue shade. It seems likely this is an error patch rather than a distinct variant.

Patch id:

3" souvenir patch [SLPUNK3i1]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 3" / 76mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Minimal
Notes: This is one of several small souvenir versions (generally referred to as 3" versions) of the Skylab project patch.



Patch id:

Skylab Project Alternative Design patch [SLPUNK2]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: Approx. 4" / 101mm
Type: Partially embroidered on black twill. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Uncommon.
Value: Bare cloth back examples sell for maybe $35-$58[10]
Notes: This vintage patch uses an alternative version of the Skylab project logo. It is sometimes attributed to Lion Brothers but the lack of a selvedged finish on the border seems to imply this is from a different manufacturer, possibly Cape Kennedy Medals.
Patch id:

Skylab Project Alternative Design patch [SLPUNK3]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4¾ x 2½" / 120 x 66mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with tail.
Scarcity: Uncommon
Value: An example sold recently for $55.55[11]
Notes: This vintage patch features another design for the Skylab Project. It exists in two sizes - this one and the larger version on the right.
Patch id:

Skylab Project Alternative Design patch [SLPUNK4]

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 7¼ x 3¾" / 185 x 96mm
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed edge without tail (selvedged).
Scarcity: Uncommon
Value: An example sold recently for $61.75[12]
Notes: This vintage patch features the same design for the Skylab Project as used on the patch on the left but this version is sized to be worn on the back of overalls.

Embroidered Mission Control Patches

Patch id:

Mission Control patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: AB Emblem
Distribution: Likely limited to NASA
Dimensions: 4" / 98mm body
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Very uncommon in bare cloth back form.
Value: Examples sold recently for between $92 and $508[13]
Notes: The Mission Control insignia was commissioned by Gene Kranz and designed by artist Bob McCall in 1973. A bare cloth back embroidered patch was produced by AB Emblem at around this time, likely produced just for NASA rather than for resale.

During the Shuttle era the design was modified to refer to the broader "Mission Operations" rather than "Mission Control". Note that modern replicas of the original design exist, one of which is shown on the right.

Patch id:

Mission Control patch replica 1

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Available commercially
Dimensions: 4" / 101mm
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge without 'tail' (selvedged).
Scarcity: Available commercially (200 produced)
Value: Unknown
Notes: This modern commemorative replica (a limited run of 200 produced by Space Boosters) is easily distinguished from the original.

NASA Apollo P.I. Team Patch

Patch id:

NASA Apollo P. I. Team patch

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Likely limited to NASA
Dimensions: 3" / 77mm body
Type: Fully embroidered. Merrowed edge with 'tail'.
Scarcity: Rare.
Value: A few examples surfaced in 2012, selling for up to $33[14]
Notes: The "P. I." on this patch likely refers to the Principal Investigators - NASA's term for the scientists who work on different aspects of space science on each project. This was almost certainly an unofficial patch produced by one of the Apollo P. I.s on their own initiative.
Very few examples have been seen, but six were offered in 2012 from one seller who had no background information on their origin.

Embroidered Apollo ARIA Patches

NASA's Advanced Range Instrumentation Aircraft (ARIA) were used to track and relay telemetry from a spacecraft to the ground when it was out of range of any fixed ground stations. NASA used an extensive array of ground stations to track and communicate with orbiting spacecraft, supported by tracking ships which could be moved into some ocean areas. However, the coverage provided by these ground-based tracking stations left considerable gaps.

For the Apollo project a fleet of 8 C-135 aircraft were modified to provide a flexible airborne answer to this problem. The resulting EC-135N Advanced Range Instrumentation Aircraft (ARIA) provided spacecraft tracking, and telemetry/voice relay and recording capability for the Apollo lunar missions.

One of the ARIA officers during the Apollo era, Captain David J. Dunn, created an unofficial patch for the project in late 1970. He based the patch design on the existing Apollo project patch and had around 400 examples produced, possibly by AB Emblem.

According to Dunn these patches were very popular with the ARIA Electronics Technicians and he believes most of the patches were probably sewn to flight suits at the time. Most of these flight suits were replaced by NOMEX versions in around 1971, at which point most of the original patches would have been lost. Dunn only retains one unused example today along with one example sewn to an original flight suit which he managed to save from destruction.

Looking at the Apollo ARIA patches that have surfaced at auction over the last few years, most have appeared in pairs with one grey example and one blue. Capt. Dunn has confirmed that he never produced (or saw) any blue versions of this patch during his time at ARIA and close examination of these grey examples shows distinct differences with his 1970 originals.

Although my initial thought was that these later versions were likely reproductions the source of my example stated that it was acquired at a surplus store in around 1980 and examining this example in detail showed that it was indeed consistent with a vintage patch from the 1970s. Since Capt. Dunn left the ARIA program in 1972 it seems possible that a member of one of the later ARIA crews covering the Skylab and ASTP missions of 1973 to 1975 may have had a batch of these grey and blue ARIA patches produced during this period.

You can read more about Capt. Dunn's ARIA involvement here with more coverage of ARIA 4's role in the Apollo 13 reentry here. Finally, there's an extensive site on ARIA in general called FlyAria.

Patch id:

Apollo ARIA patch (original 1970 version)

Worn by crew? Yes, by ARIA crew.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Possibly AB Emblem
Distribution: To ARIA crews.
Dimensions: 4" (99 x 103mm) body
Type: Partially embroidered on grey twill. Merrowed selvedged (no tail) border.
Scarcity: Very rare.
Value: No confirmed vintage sales examples.
Notes: This is the vintage Apollo ARIA patch produced by Capt. David J. Dunn in late 1970 and distributed to ARIA crew members at the time. All other designs shown here are believed to be later versions.

Although the later grey versions are very close to the orginal design there are a few key differences:

  • There are clear thread tracks joining the "APOLLO" letter elements on the vintage patch which are missing from all the later versions, including the blue version(s).
  • The two stars under the right leg of the central "A" link up to the base of the A in the original and not in any of the later versions.
  • The gap under the "ARIA" text is narrower in the original than in the later versions.

Patch id:

Apollo ARIA patch (later grey version)

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm body
Type: Partially embroidered on grey twill. Merrowed edge.
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Examples have sold for $24 to $75[15]
Notes: This patch appears to be a later version of the original Apollo ARIA patch. These tend to appear in pairs along with a blue version as shown below.
As mentioned in the introduction above this may be a version produced after the Apollo moon landings, in the 1973-1975 Skylab to ASTP phase.
Patch id:

Apollo ARIA patch (later blue version)

Worn by crew? No.
Flown? No.
Manufacturer: Unknown
Distribution: Unknown
Dimensions: 4" / 103mm body
Type: Partially embroidered on blue twill. Merrowed selvedged border (no tail).
Scarcity: Unknown
Value: Examples have sold for $24 to $75[15]
Notes: The creator of the original Apollo ARIA patch from 1970 did not create any blue version of the patch. As mentioned in the introduction it seems possible that this blue patch and the grey version shown above may have been produced around the time of the Skylab and ASTP missions, between 1973 and 1975.

Note that an example sold in 2006 at an Aurora space auction ( see image) had a clear black border around the moon on the left of the patch (like the grey versions), whilst the example shown above does not have this feature. It's not clear whether this represents a different version of the patch.
