A set of Earth Defense Directorate patches from the sci-fi television series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Buck Rogers (Gil Gerard) and members of The Earth Defense Directorate, the planet's military force, wore patches on their uniforms throughout the series.
Two of the four white and blue iron-on patches feature a globe set within a shield and encircled by laurel leaves anchored by a black halo; one features only the globe and shield; and a fourth reads "Per Ardua Ad Astra," the organization's Latin motto. All appear never to have been ironed and exhibit only minimal signs of age and use. Dimensions (largest): 9 cm x 10.25 cm x 1.5 cm (3½" x 4" x½"); (smallest): 6.5 cm x 6.5 cm x 1.5 cm (2½" x 2½" x½")
