Collection of nine Beta cloth patches, including: three 6.75 x 6 Beta cloth patches featuring the NASA 'meatball' logo, and six larger 9 x 9 Beta patches featuring mission insignias: one for Apollo 15, two for Apollo 16, and three for Apollo 17. It is interesting to note that two of the Apollo 17 patches are unusual variants: one marked "2" has the text accomplished in light gray rather than the usual white, and another marked "2A" has a ring around the perimeter that is not present on the unmarked example. In overall fine condition. From the collection of Dan Schaiewitz, who worked as Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC. View Dan's many Collect Space posts here. Engineer Dan Schaiewitz gives us a fascinating firsthand glimpse into his experiences on the cutting edge of space exploration during the Apollo missions, in this podcast.
