On Wednesday 15th January I went up to the village between Market Harborough and Corby to see Fiona, and to go through all of her remaining space patches stocks.
I have bought a fair chunk of that remaining stock. That includes a selection of all the remaining Soviet/Russian patches produced by Stewart Emblems for the Soviet and Russian Space Agency (prior to spacepatches.nl taking that contract over).
Also a fair selection of the remaining stock of shuttle and associated patches like crew, participants, payloads and experiments. Also the unmanned satellites, platforms, laboratories, vehicles. Also the space agencies and facilities, anniversaries, specials and the ISS and their associated patches.
I had to leave behind all the USAF, RAF and other air force patches, airline and private flight patches, Airbase patches, air crew insignia and commemorative patches and other metal flight badges.
I will be listing for sale a lot of the space patches I bought on Wednesday on the Buy, Sell, Trade section of collectSPACE very soon. I am currently going through and sort out nearly a thousand patches.
If any cS members want to send me a "wants list," or request any patches from the Steward Emblems catalogues, for 2017 and 2018, please let me know the page number, patch reference number, and short description. Many thanks.
By the way; I have been a regular account holder customer (C.69) of Stewart Emblems/Aviation since February 1982.
Update; Many thanks for the two enquiries I have received so far.
