This is a 1960s Trans World Airlines ground crew hat badge 1st issue type I. This badge was first used in 1968 and was worn by both sky caps and agents. This wing looks much like the agent hat badge of this period, but is gold in color.
Circa late 1960s.
About 3-1/2" in width by 1-3/8" in height.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Single screw post with double stabilizing pins.
This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MHJL04 LAGEX
7+ (Very Fine+): The badge shows some minor wear.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
