ARTIFACT: Extremely rare WWII United States Army Paratrooper badge by Norsid. The paratrooper badge is sterling silver and shows two wings furled tightly about a balloon. Norsid was notorious for having stress cracks and other issues with their insignia. Faulty dies, or faulty materials, I am not sure. This example shows a large pressure crack flaw in the canopy, otherwise near mint condition.

VINTAGE: Circa WWII

SIZE: Approximately 1-1/2" x 7/8"

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Sterling

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with drop in locking swivel catch.

MARKINGS: "NORSID CO. N.Y.", "STERLING"

ITEM NOTES: This is from a US Army collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJJX07 LDEJX7/16

CONDITION: 9 (Excellent—Near Mint): The badge shows a large pressure crack flaw in canopy, otherwise in near mint condition.

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