This is a great enameled lapel pin for Curtiss-Wright Aircraft Corporation from the early 1930s. Curtiss-Wright closed out World War II with the distinction of producing the most aircraft of any other American company. The pin is a petite wing with an orange-red center showing a great minimalistic representation of the nose of an incoming plane.
Circa early 1930s.
Approximately 1/4” in height and 15/16” in width.
Gold-plated brass with enamel.
Single screw post with disc backing.
L.G. BALFOUR CO. on backing.
This is from an aviation company collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VEX99 LADEX3/11
8 (Excellent-): The pin shows very light wear only and the backing is somewhat tarnished.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
