Over the last month AB Emblem has been adding revivals and reproductions of vintage patches to its Space Patches website. The latest addition to be listed yesterday (20th July) was the Japanese space agency "JAXA" patch.

For a number of these patches listed below I'm not sure if they have an embedded label on them or not, and if they do I don't know the country of manufacture or date codes used. (I will update this information when reported or known). If someone from AB Emblem sales department could update the missing information, that would be most appreciated.

The Gemini 3 and Gemini 4 patches come in the sealed Gene Dorr packets to match and complete the set of Gemini 5 to Gemini 12 patches issued about 8 years ago. (Both the initial batches of the Gemini 3 and Gemini 4 patches have now sold out at AB Emblem.)

Here is a list of some of the patches AB Emblem have recently listed on their NASA Space Patches website:

If any cS members can also update this list, please post on this thread, many thanks.
