Apollo 16 NASA Astronaut Patch – 1972

Launched April 16, 1972 from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida. The three Astronauts were: Young, Mattingly and Duke.

This is the official “Apollo Astronaut Emblem” new in the original package. 4 inch round patch very nicely embroidered. This is the launch that I was at and filmed with my dad’s 8mm movie camera. I hope to be able to post the video of it soon. It was one of the most amazing sights and sounds I have ever witnessed.

Back when TWA was still in business. This patch in its original unopened package is rather rare. I purchased it at the KSC as I lived in Cocoa Beach, Florida at the time of the launch.

Thanks for your visit.
