ARTIFACT: This is a circa early World War II Transcontinental & Western Air Inc. (TWA) pilot's cap badge. Because the badge is cast white metal painted gold, it was probably made in the early World War II period before the government absorbed the airline industry and made it the Civilian Air Transport Command. The badge is the beautifully detailed head and headdress of a Native American man in profile above the Deco TWA wing.

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 1-13/16" in height and 2-3/8" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Cast white metal painted gold.

ATTACHMENT: Single screw post with disc backing.


ITEM NOTES: This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay VBEX7/98 LDGEX5/11

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The wing has some light to medium wear and a handsome tarnish.

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