|The picture shows all (8) Small Old Airplane Related Items in this lot. Seven of these are made of metal and one is a wooden nickel.|
There are two coins in this lot that commemorate Admiral Byrd. The larger one appears to be made of copper or bronze. It has wear as pictured. It has an image of Byrd with a shield on one side and an airplane on the other. It is marked on the two sides as follows:
REAR ADMIRAL RICHARD E. BYRD, U.S.N.
FIRST TO FLY OVER THE SOUTH POLE
TO COMMEMORATE THE ACHIEVEMENT OF
THE BYRD ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION
1928 - 1930
The other coin is made of aluminum. It was a premium from Shell Gasoline Stations. It appears to be in mint condition. One side pictures an airplane flying over ice with penguins. It is marked on the two sides as follows:
ADMIRAL BYRD'S FLIGHT OVER THE SOUTH POLE
SHELL'S FAMOUS FACTS & FACES GAME
The wooden nickel is in excellent condition. It pictures a Native American Indian on one side and the two sides read as follows:
GOOD FOR ONE CUP OF COFFEE
AT THE FLIGHT DECK
There are (3) AMELIA EARHART luggage keys. They each have an image of an airplane propeller, a logo, and Amelia's name. Two of them bear the number #2086 and the other has no number. One was flipped over to show the other side.
There is an old brass button with a raised image of a small old airplane and six stars. The back has a rivit type section. It appears to be in excellent condition.
The last item in this lot is a thin brass airplane ornament. There are two sharp tabs that I believe go into materal. I do not know what this came from. It appears to be in excellent condition.
All of these for one price! To judge the sizes the wooden nickel measures 1-1/2" wide.
