NASA Mission Patches
I bought this pair of NASA mission patches. There are a lot of replicas of these patches. I read that the Apollo 11 patch has around 25 variations. The interesting thing is, that all the patches I found are 3". My patches are both 4". More research is needed, so for know I'm assuming they are replicas.
"The primary objective of Apollo 11 was to complete a national goal set by President John F. Kennedy on May 25, 1961: perform a crewed lunar landing and return to Earth."
