Exact replica patches based off the original "Type 3" early Apollo-Era NASA "Meatball" Patch. This replica patch is machine embroidered to be extremely accurate to the NASA "Meatball" worn by astronauts on Apollo 1, 7, 8, 9, & 11.
This was the last embroidered patch sewn to the outside of Apollo space suits before switching to Beta cloth.
These are made with old stock fabrics from the 1960s, and embroidered on vintage machines to match the original patches exactly. They are marked on the back in ink with "MFG. LUNA REP" to distinguish these from originals.
MADE IN THE U.S.A.
