SEVEN MERCURY MISSION EMBLEMS
Cloth crew emblems, seven total, all circular and 4 inches in diameter. Mounted together and framed.

The Mercury astronauts never had a dedicated mission emblem to place on their individual space suits, only the NASA "meatball" emblem and leather name tag. Each Mercury spacecraft, however, did have its individual name and logo painted onto the outer skin, usually just below the spacecraft window. This set of cloth emblems was made a few years after the program ended and is a high fidelity representation of the exact logo from each manned spacecraft. Additionally, each astronaut's own initials are woven near the "5 o'clock" position of their emblem. For example, the "FREEDOM 7" emblem has the initials "ABS" for Alan Bartlett Shepard.
