Description

This beta cloth patch is from the personal collection of Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who carried it to the Moon aboard the Command Module Kitty Hawk from January 31 to February 9, 1971. In addition to his signature, Mitchell has added the inscription, "Flown to the moon aboard Kitty Hawk."

The insignia patch is printed on a 9" x 9" square of material made of fireproof Beta cloth-glass fibers coated with Teflon, the same material used on the outer layer of astronauts' spacesuits to protect them from extreme temperatures. This silkscreen cloth is from the same production run as the patches worn by the Apollo 14 crew during the mission.

This lot is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Mitchell.

ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the bid, and to accept a bid from a lower bidder, for any reason with their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
