ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare circa 1934 pilot wing for General Air Lines, a temporary incarnation of Western Air Express (WAE). WAE had operated in its own right since 1925, and experienced a forced merger with Transcontinental five years later. In 1934 WAE broke free of this arrangement and changed its name to General Air Lines, but the name was only used for some months. After this brief stint, the airline reclaimed its original name, later becoming Western Air Lines (WAL), in 1941. The wing has fantastically detailed feathers and an "Indian Head" profile at is center.

VINTAGE: Circa 1934.

SIZE: Approximately 15/16" in height by 3-1/8" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Sterling silver.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with drop-in swivel locking catch.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VABEX12 LCDJJX10/12

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The wing shows some spots of light to medium wear and has an overall tarnish.

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