ARTIFACT: This is an early World War II Pan Am "Clipper" souvenir pin. The "Clipper" style plane was popular in the 1930s and the crews even dressed in navy-like garb to bestow a feeling of safety in the passengers, who believed they were traveling in an airborne version of an ocean liner. The pin is in two parts connected by a chain: one part is a "clipper" plane and the other part is the letters US.

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

SIZE: Clipper pin: approximately 1/2" in height and 13/16" in width; US pin: approximately 1/4" in height and 5/16" in width; chain approximately 1-1/4" in length.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gold-plated brass.

ATTACHMENT: Two horizontal safety-style pins with linked chain and two loops.

MARKINGS: N/A.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airline company collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJX98 LHEX12/10

CONDITION: 8 (Excellent-): This pin shows light wear, and the one you will receive will either be this one or one almost exactly like it.

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