AAF Distinguished Aerial Bomber Badge
The Distinguished Aerial Bomber and Distinguished Aerial Gunner badges are two of the rarer of Army Air Corps military aviation awards. These gold badges were struck initially in 14K gold by Rock Island Arsenal then in 14K gold and later gold plated versions by BB&B. They were awarded to the highest scoring aviation officers at the annual gunnery and bombing matches held at Langley Field, VA from 1926 to 1932. This excellent condition example is BB&B marked and unattributed. Ex-William Emerson collection and will include letter detailing the history of the award from Mr. Emerson.
