LOVELL'S FLOWN APOLLO 13 EMBLEM.
INTENDED FOR THE LUNAR SURFACE.
Cloth crew mission emblem carried on the flight of Apollo 13 by Commander James Lovell, approximately 4 inches in diameter. Mounted on a Typed Letter Signed by JAMES LOVELL.
JAMES LOVELL'S signed provenance letter reads: "The attached patch ... was one of the few planned to be carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Aquarius. On April 13, 1970 ... the Apollo XIII lunar landing mission was aborted, and Aquarius was used as a "lifeboat" during our flight around the moon and back to earth."
