|I'm resurrecting an old thread here because I've come across another set of these modern patches which Ken attributes to Cape Kennedy Medals.|
A few of the patches are different (better I would say) than the versions in the eBay set shown at the top of the thread.
Although very modern looking I find some of these patches to be pretty nicely done — Apollo 9 in particular as Gene mentioned long ago, but the Apollo 11 and 16 patches also not bad either.
I also realized that the 'mystery' bare back Apollo 15 design I came across recently is actually a perfect match for the Apollo 15 in this set. It seems that they experimented at least with producing bare back versions of these patches.
I also came across the matching 3" versions, although not a complete set:
Now I'm not a fan of 3" patches but it strikes me that if you have to use a 3" patch in some kind of presentation most of these versions look a whole lot better than the vast majority of versions I've seen.
The Apollo 7, 9, 11 and 16 patches look very good to me (for 3" patches) and some of the others not bad.
