With the shuttle now sitting in museums, it is tougher to find and see flown patch presentation pieces that have International Space Station expedition patches on it. STS-135 took up many patches from future expeditions but with no shuttle and the lack of space on Soyuz and Dragon, this means less patches. I think that is why you see more of the flown USA flags with unflown patches on them.

I would like to see flown patches from any of the ISS expeditions starting around Expedition 12. If people have seen them and have a picture, please add it to the thread.

I have these, sent by the crews. I'm sorry about the quality...

Does anyone have pictures of anything current? Are patches going up and down on Dragon? The Soyuz does allow much room for the astronauts to bring stuff back.

What I have seen lately from some other presentation pieces are flown flags that flew on the shuttle with montages from the ISS crews.

If this is the case, flown patches from Exp. 29 on could be very collectible and hard to find. Thoughts?

Not Expedition patches, but these recently came back on Soyuz. I heard that similar Soyuz TMA-07M patch panels were sent down on Dragon, packed with cosmonaut's personal belongings. Unfortunately, they all "disappeared".
