Extremely rare circa 1918 WWI French Army 501st Special Artillery Regiment (Tanks) insignia. The badge shows a nicely detailed, fire-breathing dragon in the center of a ring, half laurel leaves and half oak leaves joined together at the base in a bow with a gilt brass shield that shows: "AS" in intertwined, raised lettering.
Approximately 1-5/8" in diameter.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Stamped silvered & gilt brass.
Horizontal pin with 'C' type catch.
This is from a French Army collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MFJX16 LABGEX2/16 SABGEX10/16/21
8+ (Excellent): The badge shows minor wear, nearly all the gilt details remain intact, handsome patina in overall excellent condition.
