Description


Rare flown Apollo 15 embroidered mission patch, measuring 4″ in diameter, with the addition of an embroidered silver “XV” hallmark near the center. Signed on the reverse in blue felt tip, “‘Falcon’ to surface, Dave Scott.” Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Scott stating, in part, “I hereby certify that the Apollo 15 patch (with silver ‘XV’) included with this letter was carried to the surface of the Moon…This cloth patch…features the Apollo 15 crew insignia designed by Emilo Pucci…the Roman numerals ‘XV’ are embroidered in silver thread on the edges of the crater rims in the center, and the initials of Emilo Pucci (‘EP’) are reproduced as a hallmark in the lower center…This special Apollo 15 patch has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth.” In fine condition. Enhanced by the inclusion of the lunar module callsign, this phenomenal flown patch remains forever linked to the Apollo program’s influential ‘J’ mission, an operation that set the bar for all scientific lunar explorations. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
