Description

These bronze wings with silver prop replaced the Signal Corps crossed flags (with varieties of winged pattern insignia applied) in 1918.  This single example was made and marked, “BB& B, BRONZE,” with the prop mark “STERLING.”  Pin back with the “Tiffany” style locking clutch.

40mm wing span, with a 24mm prop length.

Excellent plus condition, with nearly all the original bronze finish on both sides of insignia, with a strong untouched patina on the sterling prop. They don’t get any better for condition.
