Fantastic 1930's United States Air Corps (USAC) 23rd Tow Target, huge hand-painted leather banner/pennant from Guatemala City, Central America. This banner even has a Guatemalan postage stamp or perhaps a tax revenue stamp right in the center of the back. A wonderful, unique US Air Corps piece. The pennant/banner features a HUGE squadron 'patch' 9 1/2"e; in diameter! The squadron patch is a busted up bird smoking a cigar with a bandaged face, body, and foot, and to its side are crossed flags and the surrounding reads: "23RD TOW TARGET SQD. HENRY L. BORUN – GUATEMALA CITY C. A."
Approximately 20 ½" x 35 ½"
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
"SELLO DE CONSTRUCCION CORREOS DE GUATEMALA CARCO DEL EDIFICIO DE COMMUNICACIONES UN CENTAVO DE QUEZTZAL TIPOGRAFIA NACIONAL TALLER DE GRABADOS GUATAMALA, C. A."
This is from a United States Air Corps collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. TRVFIEX TRCDJX15 LIGEX7/15
7+ (Very Fine+): Banner/pennant shows minor to moderate wear and wrinkling. Leather is supple and much of the painted details remain.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
