This is a circa 1939 Howie Wing wing badge distributed by Kellogg's. Howie Wing was a children's radio show written by a World War I flying reservist that debuted in 1938. The success of the show was propagated by the multitude of gimmicks and prizes that grew up around the show, one of which was the cadet wing that was available to anyone with a few Kellogg's Cornflakes box tops.
Approximately 9/16" in height and 2" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Nickel-plated brass, painted areas.
Horizontal safety-style pin.
This is from a civil aviation collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAEX01 LFEX7/12
7+ (Very Fine+): The badge shows some light wear.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
