Description


Exceedingly rare flown embroidered 'White Eagle' Apollo 17 mission insignia patch carried to the moon on the Command Module 'America,' measuring 4″ in diameter, displayed in a 6.5″ wooden plaque, signed and flight-certified on the reverse of the plaque in black felt tip, "Flown to the Moon aboard spaceship America—Apollo XVII, Dec 72, Gene Cernan, CDR." In fine condition. Scarce even in unflown examples, this patch is distinguished by the white thread used on the outline of the eagle, the pale blue thread in the border, and the white thread on the planet Saturn. This is the first flown embroidered patch from Apollo 17 that we have ever encountered. A fantastic and an exceptionally rare piece originating directly from Commander Cernan's estate.
