The KSC Visitor Complex's "pin-on-pin" is indeed missing Columbus; the Winco lapel pin also appears to be missing the module, though it may only be because the right-most trail of the astronaut symbol blends into the station.

The decal includes Columbus.

We have just returned from the launch and was unpacking those items we purchased from the KSC store. Looks like the AB Emblem patch we picked up is missing the Columbus module. I did not even look when we bought it as I had assumed it was the revised item. I do not know if they were also selling the corrected one.

The Visitor Complex and Astronaut Hall of Fame seemed to be only selling the older, missing Columbus version.

The KSC NASA Exchange stores had only the newer revised patch.

Thanks Robert, looks like we will be ordering directly from AB for the corrected one.

I asked the question from my AB Emblem rep if they have the new ones. If they do, I'll post here sometime today and let everyone know.
