    Description

    World War I: 91st Aero Squadron Gilt Bronze Pin, 1¼", pin-back (latch broken), marked "Bronze" and "B. B. & B." for Bailey, Banks, and Biddle. The gilt bronze pin depicts a mounted knight in pursuit of a winged devil whose blood has already been drawn by the lance. The 91st was a corps observation squadron assigned to the First Army. The squadron was engaged in the St. Mihiel as well as the first and second Meuse-Argonne offensives. By war's end, the 91st brought down 28 German aircraft in 104 combat engagements. Aside from the damaged clasp, the pin is very fine. To view an image of the back, please click here.
