The enameled center is an applied piece independent of the wings themselves.

VINTAGE: Circa late 1940's.

SIZE: Approximately 1/2" in height and 1-7/16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gilt, enameled brass.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with tongue-style catch.


ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Coast Guard organization collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay VAEX13 LAAEX4/14

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The wings have little wear with some areas of tarnish to the reverse.

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