Another auction just started for an obsolete (Lonchakov) Expedition 43 patch: 171207187263.

Someone making replica because the colors are different tone.

This second obsolete original ISS-43 patch which has been listed is not necessarily a replica, but one possibly manufactured by TsENKI in the Russian Federation, according to the seller Magic Cardinal. He said they definitely came from a Russian source.

Yes the colours are slightly different, especially the 'gold' on the AB Emblem, is 'yellow' on this possible TsENKI Russian patch.

Can this Russian source be name here or how does one purchase Russian patch of ISS-43 through Russia?

If indeed it is a TsENKI patch, then it cannot be purchased directly.

That said, I was previously told that TsENKI did not produce Expedition 43 patches before Lonchakov left the crew.

No TsENKI Expedition-43 patches were made. I think 39 is the latest they produced - with 40 probably underway.
