LION BROTHERS CREW MISSION EMBLEMS.
Cloth crew mission emblems, 18 total with sizes from 3½ to 5 inches in diameter. Embroidered by Lion Brothers of Owens Mills, Maryland beginning in 1967.
Emblems for the Apollo, Skylab and ASTP missions. 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. The Skylab series of emblems changed the hallmark method to the first letters of the flight crew's last name. The Apollo Soyuz has "ASTP" in the Earth ocean surrounded by clouds.
