Was wondering if I could get some information on this patch? I purchased it at a steal on eBay and it definitely is original to the late 70's or early 80's I think.

I saw it posted a few years ago here, but I couldn't find the post.

The SPC, with its prime contractor LSOC, was the shuttle processing contractor from Oct 1983 to Sept 1996. In 1996, NASA consolidated all shuttle contracts into the SFOC and USA was the contractor.

Any idea how old this patch is and what it is worth? It looks old as in early shuttle. Thanks.

Late 80's and not very rare. It pops up on eBay once in a while and will go for $10.

Thanks! I got it for less than that so I'm happy.
