Description


Flown embroidered Apollo 9 mission patch, measuring 3.25″ in diameter, signed and flight-certified on the reverse in blue felt tip, “Flown Aboard Apollo 9, Dave Scott, CMP.” In fine condition, with the signature difficult to decipher due to spreading. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Dave Scott, in part: “I hereby certify that the Apollo 9 patch included with this letter was flown aboard Apollo 9, March 3–13, 1969…The design of the patch represents the orbits of the CSM and the LM during their rendezvous maneuvers. Apollo 9 was the first launch of the Saturn V launch vehicle carrying both the CSM and the LM, thus its image is depicted along with the names of the three crew members. The red filling of the letter ‘D’ indicated that Apollo 9 was a ‘D’ mission in the sequence of planned Apollo missions (‘A’ through ‘J’). This Apollo 9 patch has been in my personal collection since we returned from the moon.” Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
