The revised 2011 embroidered version of the 1981-2010 patch is now available here in the United Kingdom. I'm not 100% sure if it is an AB Emblem made patch as yet, as when I asked if it had a product number and date label on the back, the answer was NO. But I was told that the Shuttle Stack was a raised area stuck to the main body of the embroidered patch like the original 2010 AB Emblem patch.

I've ordered some, so when they arrive I will tell this forum my findings.

These revised dated 2011 patches are indeed AB Emblem made patches as they are identical to the 2010 version, but do NOT have the product number and date label under the plastic coating on the backs. The seller in the U.K. has e-mailed AB Emblem asking why this is. No reply from AB Emblem as yet.

The same goes for the one currently for sale on eBay, No label. SOLD 1, Re-listed another.

Are there revised patches with 1981-2011 available for sale?

I ordered one of these from AB Emblem (without specifying the years), and received it yesterday... it's the "2011" version, no label on the back.

I like the patch and have indeed got one. However, do you think the original Shuttle program patch with dates added would also have been a fitting commemorative?

Goddard Space Flight Center's Space Shop had the "Shuttle 30 Years" patch for sale but they said their supplier was no longer offering the patch (it still shows on their website.) Anyone know where I can purchase or trade for the original winning patch?
