At this time, a portion of the company called Western Air Transport broke away, eventually becoming General Airlines and later WAL (then simply Western Airlines). The wing is in sterling silver with an "Indian head" logo bearing an orange, red and yellow enameled headdress.

VINTAGE: Circa early 1940's.

SIZE: Approximately 5/8" in height and 2-1/16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Sterling silver, enamel.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with come-under locking swivel catch.

MARKINGS: STERLING.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airline collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. ebay MAJJX13 LAAEJX6/13

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): The wing has some light wear and moderate tarnish; enamel is all intact.

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