Extremely desirable flown embroidered 'Grumman' Apollo 10 mission insignia patch carried to the moon on Apollo 10, measuring 4 x 4, signed and flight-certified on the reverse in black felt tip, "Flown, John Young." In fine condition. These attractive patches, which vividly portray the Grumman-made LM firing its thrusters as it prepares to dock with the Rockwell-made CSM, were provided to the crew by Grumman to be flown as souvenirs. A handsome example from the collection of the prolific American astronaut, who first traveled to the moon on Apollo 10 and walked upon the lunar surface on Apollo 16.
