    World War I: 24th Aero Squadron Sterling and Bronze Pin. 1¾", pin-back (the catch is missing), silver with an applied bronze dog, French made. The badge shows an American eagle swooping down on a German dachshund which is running away with his tail between his legs. The 24th was an observation squadron assigned to the First Army Observation Group on August 14, 1918. It reached the front on August 22 to take part in operations at St. Mihiel and in both of the Argonne-Meuse offensives. It carried out more than 80 reconnaissance, fought 54 combats, and received official confirmation for 12 victories. Fabulous detail. Excellent condition.
