I spent quite awhile trying to figure out all the patches I have. The below are ones that I could not find info on or wanted to make sure I was correct in my identification.

In particular, the two NASA patches I believe are the rarer ones but wanted confirmation.

Chris Spain helped me years ago but I have since lost those emails. Thank you.

Here is another. Modern reproduction? I can't find another like it.

Top row: all likely A-B Emblem, though the rounded corner NASA worm logo patch could be Lion Brothers.

Middle row: Skylab: Lion Brothers, Skylab: Unknown, ASTP: A-B Emblem, crew version, Shuttle: unknown

Bottom row: Skylab: Unknown (but I have always felt it was from Cape Kennedy Medals)

Apollo 16: Unknown, 3", possibly CKM

Agree with Liem above.

NASA worm logo with rounded corners looks to be a Lion Brothers version - these are uncommon and were used by the astronauts.
