Personal patch used by cosmonaut on his station suit and limited number of such patches taken on board as souvenirs.Board patches I`ve produced as hand embroidered wire patches.Second version, machine made patch (actual listed patch) made in limited number right after mission by request of Salizhan Sharipov for purpose of presentations to guests, friends, officials and few pieces are available for collectors.
