Here's one that may have slipped under the radar as it wasn't around for long, certainly not long enough for the seller to allow me to bid.

I'm struggling to see any initials on the Apollo 17 oversize patch and have emailed the buyer, who may well be a collectSPACE contributor, to let me know if it is a previously unknown non-initialed version. I'll post the results when they arrive.

True. He also has what looks like an Apollo 12 Variant 3 quarantine crew patch in amongst a bunch of other LB patches. I notice he had previously offered a set of 3 oversized Apollo 17 initialled patches which went for $255 so obviously knows about them and their true worth. Maybe this framed patch, if it is un-intialled, is just an error patch with missing thread.

The buyer responded to my inquiry. Turns out it was an oversized initialled EC. Nice buy at $75.
