ARTIFACT: This is a World War II era badge for an unidentified airline, most likely a British one due to its Birmingham-based maker (Fattorini). The badge shows a tiger's head emblazoned on a wing and reads S.A.L. There is also a plain bar that would have shown an employee number or name.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with "C' catch.

MARKINGS: THOMAS FATTORINI LTD. REGENT ST. BIRMINGHAM.

CONDITION: 8+ (Excellent): The badge has very little wear and tarnish.

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