ARTIFACT: This is a jacket patch for the United States Army Air Forces 13th Air Corps Ferry Squadron, 13th Ferrying Squadron, 13th Air Transport Squadron. 

The patch shows an infant Mercury sending a stylized aircraft (in the form of the ACFC / ATC Deco Eagle Design) across the globe, indicative of the Squadron's first duty: Ferrying. .

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II.

SIZE: About 5" in diameter.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Cotton/silk embroidery on wool, mesh backing.

ATTACHMENT: To be sewn onto a garment.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Army Air Forces collection that we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJJX06 LFGEX12/12

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The patch shows light storage wear. And someone in the past has penned 13 on Mercury's thigh, no doubt to keep track of the unit designation. 

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