I would like to start a thread of pictures of every shuttle mission presentation piece —  flown flag or patch.

Let's start with STS-1. Could someone post STS-1 and then someone STS-2? Let's stay in order. I can help only when we get to 100's.

Excellent thread idea Bryan.

STS-1, you are up. STS-2, you are on deck.

Awesome idea Bryan. I'm ready to add a bunch when I get back in town tomorrow. I'm afraid we may see a lull in response for some of the flights. Maybe after a certain amount of time we can move forward if a flight presentation is not posted?

To get the ball rolling, here's an STS-1 flown flag presentation:

For many of the missions, STS-1 included, there were a number of different style presentations, both for flags and patches, and flags-and-patches.

I realize this is out of order, but it is a STS-1 flag and patch presentation piece to Deke Slayton. Anyhow, on to STS-5!

Yes, go ahead. If anyone has an STS-5 later on, add it!

In honor of Sally Ride, does anyone have her first mission in a presentation piece?

Yes, I have an ALT patch (courtesy of the Horton family) flown on Free Flight 1. Not a presentation piece, but just marked on the back as such.

Thanks for replying. I tried searching with Google and on past auctions and could not find any listed. Maybe they are more rare than others.

As an Italian, of course I have the flag of my country. He flew on STS-46.

I also have the STS-46 Atlantis flown flag (given from by George Hopson, SSME project manager).

I have two presentations of patches that flew on STS-75, 1996, flown crew patch mounted on a framed multicolor montage that has been signed by the crew. Post the photos later.
