Ext. Rare WWII US Army Paratrooper Badge by Norsid in Sterling
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.
