Anybody have any idea as to its legitimacy (e.g., did Lucid commission this patch?) I'm confused because STS-76 was not a Discovery flight.

My guess is that this is an invention of the seller based on:
Your name and address will be placed on the certificate after each purchase.
...and the disclaimer:
This design is protected under copyright.
To say nothing of the orbiter/mission mismatch.

The seller confirms that he created the patch, and that "Discovery" was the result of a mix-up between designs he submitted to the manufacturer.

Thus, this is a commemorative patch with no connection to Shannon Lucid or the mission.
