THOMAS P. STAFFORD'S signed provenance letter reads in part: "Enclosed with this letter is an Apollo X Beta cloth crew emblem flown on the flight of Apollo X during May 18 to 26, 1969. I was commander of this flight which carried the first lunar module named SNOOPY to lunar orbit.

This Beta emblem was carried in SNOOPY as Gene Cernan and I descended to within 50,000 feet of the lunar surface… Gene and I proved that the planning teams had correctly established the procedures for lunar operations, with just a few exceptions that were later corrected for Apollo 11.

The beta emblem has the distinction of one of the fastest flown artifacts from space travel. During the Apollo X reentry, my fellow crew members, Gene Cernan and John Young, and I established the all-time record for the highest speed ever attained by man – 24,790 mile per hour.”
