Jay, your missile badge collection is growing! The 569th SMS patch looks in great condition, early 60's and Titan I so early ICBM-also used for some space flights. Very cool patch.

Yes, those are usually over 5".  Great piece of Cold War history.

Jay V,

 

Awesome display.

 

Just a suggestion, something I've learned mounting medals for veterans where I work.

 

Use a picture frame with already cut matting. Also use felt with an adhesive background mounted over cardboard. The insignia is then mounted with Velcro.

 

The combination allows the display elements to just jump out to the viewer.

 

Geo
