APOLLO 11 EMBLEM WORN IN THE WHITE ROOM.
Apollo 11 crew emblem, 4 inches in diameter, printed on Beta cloth. Mounted onto a Typed Letter Signed by Guenter Wendt.

The letter reads: "This Apollo 11 Beta Cloth patch was the official emblem issued by NASA to wear on my close-out garment during launch preparations for the Apollo/Saturn 506 mission. Apollo 11 was launched on July 16, 1969. The emblem was worn in the White Room at the end of swing arm number 9, which was at the 320 foot level of Launch Complex 39A. I was pad leader for checkout of the spacecraft and ingress of the astronauts during the countdown for Apollo 11."
