LION BROTHERS CREW MISSION EMBLEMS.
Cloth crew mission emblems, 15 total, with sizes from 3½ to 5 inches in diameter. Embroidered by Lion Brothers of Owens Mills, Maryland beginning in 1967.

These cloth emblems are noted for their detailed artistry and exceptional quality of the official NASA crew designs. The Apollo 12 through 17 emblems have hallmarks in the form of their respective mission number "hidden" in the embroidery. Hallmarks are located in Apollo 12's Clipper ship dust trail, in a horse mane just below the sun for Apollo 13, upside-down in the white lunar surface for Apollo 14, just above the "D" in Worden on the Apollo 15 emblem, under the gold vector on the right for Apollo 16, and in the shoulder of god Apollo for Apollo 17. The Skylab series of emblems changed the hallmark method to the first letter of the flight crew's last name. Skylab I has the "CKW" placed to the right of the Skylab space station, Skylab II has the "BGL" upside-down in the sun just above the "S" in Skylab, and for Skylab 3 the "CGP" makes up part of the green leaves of the tree inside the large "3."
