1940s sterling silver and enamel ATC insignia pin. The design on this pin was first approved in 1942, but the Air Transport Command was created earlier in the war and served to both deliver supplies and equipment to overseas combat theaters and to ferry aircraft from plants in the US to locations abroad for use or training.
The emblem designed for this unit, which was inactivated in 1948, has a very futuristic, machine-age look. The symbol is depicted in red, white and blue enamel. This round, slightly domed pin measures approximately 1 1/8 inch in diameter and is finished with a brass pin stem and roll over safety of sterling.
