Description


Highly desirable embroidered Apollo 1 mission patch deriving from the personal collection of original Mercury astronaut Deke Slayton. The patch measures 3.5″ in diameter and includes a signed letter of provenance from Bobbie Slayton dated July 23, 2005, in full: "This is to certify that this Apollo 1 crew patch belonged to my husband, Deke Slayton, and was given to him by Gus Grissom.
