Watching a recording of Dr. Kathryn Sullivan's "Hands on Hubble" presentation on C-SPAN, and she spoke of a STS-31 pin the crew gave out to folks that worked on the Hubble Space Telescope during their pre-launch tour. It was a mission patch with a rocker underneath that was supposed to say "Launch Crew."

However, there was the inevitable typo, and the pin read "Lunch Crew."

Anyone out there have one of these? They were supposed to be returned, but of course no one did.

Yeah, I've seen one or two of these. A Cape Kennedy Medals produced piece I thought. Interesting they actually made it to crew members!
