How much would a patch flewn abord the space shuttle mission for Spacelab 3 be worth?
The patch is genuine and has been in orbit. It was worn by one of the crew members aboard the shuttle Challenger for the Spacelab 3 (STS-51-B) mission. The mission happened for a week between April and May 1985.

You also mention no documentation that verifies the patch was actually worn on a space mission. How would a potential buyer be sure it was. No one would attribute any value to it just based on your word. Even if you got the patch from the actual crew member, whom ever you sold it to would have no way of knowing.
Plus, you can't just type up a piece of paper saying its genuine. That documentation would have to be from a reliable, verifiable source.
There have been duplicate, counterfeit patches made for many significant NASA missions. There would be a HUGE difference in value between one of these and a real one.

I'm not being cheeky but it's worth what somebody is willing to pay for it.
But seriously, you need to do some research. Like look at this: http://www.thespacestore.com/stflar.html
Maybe snoop around that store. Then check other place where space memorabilia is sold. Frankly, that sounds like a big job to get an accurate picture. You aren't expecting one of us to do that for you, are you?
