ARTIFACT: This is a circa 1930s lapel wing for the Air Cadets of America (ACA), a group begun in 1932 by the American Legion. In an era when preparatory civilian pilot training was already implemented abroad, especially in Germany, the ACA aimed to follow suit. It provided aviation training and education to American males aged 15-20, therefore expediting any pilot training they may receive in the service later on. The wing is by F.H. Noble & Company of Chicago.

VINTAGE: Circa 1930s.

SIZE: Approximately 7/16" in height and 1-5/8" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gilt brass, painted details.

ATTACHMENT: Single screw post with disc backing.


ITEM NOTES: The wing you receive will either be the one pictured or one in very similar condition. This is from a civil aviation collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJX12 LAAEX10/12

CONDITION: 8 (Excellent-): The wing shows very little wear.

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