Can any one confirm this is an original as worn by STS-1 crew? My biggest concern is the USA on the wing.

Auction just ended. Thanks!

Yes, it's an original/authentic crew patch. The embroidery is just imperfect for the "USA" lettering. I have one where the "USA" is missing altogether.

All times are CT (US)
