This is Rare & VERY Early 11/19/41 C.C. Moseley Presentation Civilian Pilot Instructor Wing of James Paul Kurten.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Corliss Champion Moseley (July 23, 1894 - 1974) was a United States Army aviator and later civilian trainer. He won the inaugural Pulitzer Air Race in 1920. Following his service in World War I, where he was credited with one aerial victory, he was placed in charge of all United States Army Air Service schools. As a civilian, he set up flying schools which are estimated to have taught over 25,000 pilots and 5000 mechanics, mostly for service in World War II. He was also a business executive, either helping found or organize Western Air Express (which later became Western Airlines).
Early World War II, 11/19/41.
Approximately 13/16" in height x 3" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Gilt Brass and engraved on back.

This is from a United States Army Air Forces collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VGEJV19 LBAGEX12/14/22
8+ (Excellent): Only very light wear, and little tarnish are present. This wing was obviously well stored throughout its existence.
