ARTIFACT: This is a wonderful WWI Austrian Navy Model 1915 Pilot's Badge, constructed in the 1920's. Although it is not riveted, or held together with bent over prongs, like so many post-war examples of this badge, it is made in 2 pieces, the basic badge, and then the detailed, one-piece Albatross, crown, and anchor is soldered to the badge base. The Albatross is silver plated, while the crown & anchor are gilt. The albatross shows a lovely rainbow patina form the passing of the years.

VINTAGE: Circa 1920's

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

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gilt brass, silvered and enameled.

ATTACHMENT: Vertical Pin with a c-type catch


ITEM NOTES: This is from a WWI Austrian Navy insignia collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MCJJV17 LBGEJX02/17

CONDITION: 8+ (Excellent): The Badge has very minor wear regarding the enamel, and the patina is beautiful.

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