"TEXAS ART EMBROIDERY" MISSION INSIGNIA PATCH


FLOWN embroidered patch, approximately 3 by 4 inches overall, featuring a large red roman number X against a light blue background. Affixed to a Typed Letter Signed by John Young's widow, Susy Young, on their personal letterhead.


VERY RARE, one of only 110 examples supplied to NASA. One of the few mission patches without the crew's names. 


Susy Young's provenance letter reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the Gemini 10 "Texas Art Embroidery" Embroidered Mission patch that accompanies this letter was flown aboard the Gemini 10 mission July 18-21, 1966. This patch was part of John W. Young's personal collection since the mission. The protective package holding the patch is sealed with a holographic tamper-proof label, #1745118, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number if removed."
