Original WWII US Army and USAAF officer's service cap insignia by the famed English supplier Luxenberg. Overall design is typical of such 1940s devices, but Luxenberg's styling was unique and their quality extraordinary: stamping is crisp and highly-detailed, and the gilded finish is dense and heavy. Measures 2 1/2" (6 cm.) square. Obverse is stamped: "Luxenberg / Made in / England." Screwpost with its original knurled brass affixing nut is present and in fine shape. The two movement-restricting pins on eagle's wing reverses have been trimmed. Approximately 99.9% of the original finish remains. Maguire documents and illustrates the Luxenberg line in detail in his Silver Wings, Pinks & Greens . Fine example.
