    Description

    World War I: Silver and Gilt "Issoudun" Propeller Badge, 1 7/8", pin-back, unmarked, French made. This two-piece construction badge has a silver winged propeller with a gilt applied riband that is engraved "Issoudun". The United States Air Service maintained the 3rd Aviation Instruction Center, the largest overseas American air base. It was the primary training facility of American fighter pilots. Eddie Rickenbacker, Frank Luke, and Quentin Roosevelt were among the 766 pursuit pilots that received training there. Very fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
