ARTIFACT: Beautiful WWI United States Air Service (USAS) pilot wing in an unusual, elegant, and long style - similar to a Link produced wing, but markedly different. This is only the 2nd one I've owned. The center of the wing features a US Shield showing 13 raised stars with nicely detailed vertical stripes below and reads "U.S." in 14K gold. The US Shield is centered between wings with beautiful feather detail.

VINTAGE: Circa World War I.

SIZE: Approximately 11/16" height and 3-1/4" width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Sterling silver with 14K gold "U.S." on sheild.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with come-under locking swivel catch (catch and hinge appear to have been a period repair/replacement: this wing saw some action!!).


ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Air Service collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. 1L-CON-JMB-50/-HEJX10 LBGEJX11/10 TRVAEJJX6/13 2L-TRVEJJX13 2LBFGEX8/16

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): This wing has been beautifully preserved; catch and hinge appear to be a period replacement/repair.

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