VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 1/2" in height and 1-11/16" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gold-filled, gilt brass (clip).

ATTACHMENT: Tie bar.

MARKINGS: Anson on fastener.

ITEM NOTES: This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MEEX12 LCDEX11/12 SLDFEX01/03/24
