1930’s American Motorcycle Association (AMA) 1st year member lapel pin. The AMA began in 1924 in Ohio. The pin is a curved triangle fantastically enameled in black with a yellow, red, and green swirl at its center and the letters “AMA” in each of the corners. The pin’s design is based upon an ancient Buddhist symbol.

6 (Fine+): The lapel pin shows moderate wear, much of the gilt brass and enamel details remain intact, although there is a tiny chip in the enamel. Overall fine condition.
