ARTIFACT: This is an early 1930s Pan Am Miami "Clipper" souvenir pin. The "Clipper" style plane was popular in the 1930s and the crews even dressed in navy-like garb to bestow a feeling of safety in the passengers, who believed they were traveling in an airborne version of an ocean liner. The pin is in two parts joined by a chain: one part is a winged propeller and the other is a coin-like pin flanked by the letters U and S showing a Clipper in relief.

VINTAGE: Circa 1930s.

SIZE: Propeller pin: approximately 1-1/4" in height and 1-13/16" in width; US pin: approximately 11/16" in height and 1-3/8" in width; chain runs 2-1/4" between pin.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gold-plated brass with enamel detail.

ATTACHMENT: Propeller pin: horizontal pin with come-under locking swivel catch; US pin: horizontal safety-style pin; linked chain with two suspension loops.

MARKINGS: PAT. number on propeller pin.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airline company collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay10/05/20 VBEX10 LEGEX12/10 SeVGAJX10/20
