A few months ago I acquired (with a lot of other random space patches from Gemini to STS) what looks like a regular AB Emblem Skylab program patch, however upon further inspection some slight variations in stitching were evident:

Mainly the stitching in the "Solar Observatory" section, there's criss-cross truss stitching like the Lion Brothers' version. The stitching is also slightly tighter on the solar panels. The white lettering is just a bit smaller as wel.

The way the clouds are done are identical to the common AB Emblem version so I am pretty sure this is theirs. I hadn't seen another likes this until I just saw another one on eBay this week (321111991546).
