WWI period, US junior/reserve styled half-wing

Consignment

NEW! WWI period, US junior/reserve styled half-wing. Hand made in silver. Very interesting is fact that wing is oriented the other way (left side). Quality is very good, considering it being all hand made. It is actually made up of 2 separate sheets, one with all the details of the front and the backing piece which features jeweller  quality locking pin fastener. The 2 halves appear to have been either soldered or glued together. Letters 'US' made in brass or such, also attached to the shield. Most likely field-made during the War and fitted with backing/pin later. In any case, most interesting badge. Material tested for '800' or higher silver content (except the letters). 63mm x 28mm.
