The fifth and sixth pictures show our aged reproduction badge on our B-2 Flying Cap.
These were not only fixed to automobile sun visors (hence the two pins), but worn on USAAF caps - see the penultimate picture of a genuine USSAF Cap and St. Christopher.
The last picture shows the difference between our aged condition badge and new condition badge.
