ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare wing from an early small New England airline that was in existence for almost 9 years but its insignia is some of the most elusive in airline collecting. This is the winged badge of an agent for the airline. It shows a caped pilgrim brandishing a musket straddling a Boeing DC-2 which was the airline's logo. To the right of the logo is a gold wing with a blue enameled panel reading AGENT. This badge comes with some history as it was purchased at the estate sale of Basil Dixwell of Auburn, Maine who went on to work as an agent for Northeast Airlines when BMA changed its name and then as a pilot for the Civilian Air Transport Command in WW2 and then a pilot for Northeast Airlines in the post-war years.

VINTAGE: Circa 1937.

SIZE: Approx. 2-5/16" in length by 13/16" in height. p>

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gilt brass and sterling silver with blue and red enameling.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin back with come-under locking catch.

MARKINGS: ROBBINS CO ATTLEBORO MASS.

ITEM NOTES: This extremely rare wing is from a large collection of airline wings, badges, pins, and patches assembled over the last 15 years.

CONDITION: 9+ (Near Mint-): The pin shows almost no wear or signs of use but shows light tarnishing to the gilding on its reverse and moderate tarnish on the silver logo.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
