ARTIFACT: This is a circa 1970s insignia lot from Toa Domestic Airlines (TDA), a Japanese company that resulted from a merger in 1971 and then changed its name to Japan Air System in 1988. The lot includes two bullion wings, a pin, two name tags, two name plates and four bullion shoulder tabs. The wings each show two sidewise gulls at the center of a laurel wreath. These items belonged to a D. Michaelis, whose name is listed in both English and Japanese on the name tags and plates. We also have a captian's hat that was owned by Michaelis for sale separately: please see link at the bottom of this page for information
