Product Description

•••••

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 only the slightest of die wear which does not detract from the beautiful, near mint condition of the badge.

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. NY", "ST" only partial stamp

ITEM NOTES: This is from a US Army collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJJX07 LFGEX6/16

CONDITION: 9+ (Near Mint-): The badge shows only minor wear, overall near mint condition.

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