There are two new pins (possibly three as these two are labeled pin 1 and 3) for the Apollo 11 50th anniversary made with flown metal.

I have yet to find them in any NASA store (only on eBay).

The above two pins were made by Winco.

Here is another pin Winco released, an update on an earlier design for the 50th anniversary.

So, not sure if there are better prices out there or if they're at other, official sites, yet both pins 1 and 2 are currently at The Space Store, according to the recent email.

I have seen pins 1 and 3, but not pin 2. What does it look like?

Well there appears to be a new Apollo 13 50th pin available (at least on eBay) though that one has an Apollo 11 card (asked and was told that is how he got them from Winco). It is pin #6, There are also two Apollo 11 50th pins #4 and 5.

All times are CT (US)
