I collect Collecting Nat'l Recon. Office patches. Apart from watching eBay, I was wondering if anyone out there is a good source for them. While authentic patches as opposed to replicas are preferable, replicas are all right provided they are accurate and identified as such.

There have been two different NRO patches for DoD shuttle missions. Can someone help me with hi res scans (decal or embroided)?

Can you tell me the missions and payload on the missions to which you are referring? Thanks.

I found this DoD patch on the SpaceFacts site, but it probably is not the one you want.

This is one of the patches I'm looking for in a hi res version. The other patch is at the STS-27 site. Maybe you can contact me off forum.

Can anyone here recommend a reputable seller with a good selection of space-related military/CIA/NRO etc. patches? I'm not necessarily looking for vintage emblems, just intriguing patches in the best condition possible.

I've found quite a few on eBay, but my schedule and Web access sometimes make bid auctions problematic and time-consuming. I'd like to find someone with set prices and with whom I can deal directly.

Any suggestions/recommendations?

I have my collection posted here. I either have the patch or a photo of one for most NRO missions.

All times are CT (US)
