Greetings everyone. For Fathers Day I was given an Apollo 11 and 16 patch. I believe the Apollo 16 patch is a Lions Brothers patch. When I look at the location for the hidden number sixteen all that is there is the number 1 and it has a different orientation that what the hidden number should have. Is this considered a manufacturers defect and does this reduce the value of the patch. Thanks for any help.

This patch does not appear to be produced by Lions Brothers. Besides the missing hallmark (hidden numbers), the Lion's version has the shield bordered in red on the bottom and metallic silver thread is used in the stars and the border just inside the blue band, as is seen and referred to on Gene Dorr's Apollo 16 page.
