According to http://spaceflightnow.com/2015/03/27/delta-4-rocket-evolving-the-upgraded-main-engine/, this flight marks the last use of the original RS-68 and the different DIV-M cores.

Jim might be able to confirm this...

Multiple teams produce multiple patches. I've even seen patches for transportation of spacecraft to the launch site. One of those, for some NASA science payload read "Carefull please, only child" with the patch showing a nurse holding a pillow with the spacecraft positioned on top of the pillow.
