This is a beautiful circa early World War I French "Fix" unofficial pilot badge. The badge was worn by pilots before the official 1916 badge was introduced: prior to that, pilots wore an emblem on their sleeve, and this eagle on their breast. The eagle has a lovely lustre and is quite three-dimensional. The reverse of this badge is flat, unlike other styles, which have one side of the tailfeathers turned up slightly.
Circa early World War I.
Approximately 5/8" in height and 2-5/8" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Horizontal pin with sleeved tubular catch.
FIX (no oval around name).
This is from a French militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VGEX09 LEGEX10/12 SEJJX07/19
7 (Very Fine): The badge has some light wear and some small areas of oxidation.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
