SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE “SPIRIT OF 1940” LAPELPIN
These beautiful X4276 “Spirit of 1940” pins, which feature exquisite 18mm wingspan miniature Spitfire sculptures, are crafted of Aluminium originating from Spitfire X4276. The miniature sculptures really are perfect little three dimensional portrayals of the legendary Spitfire – true from both plan and side views.
Each miniature Spitfire has ‘TMB’ and ‘X4276’ cast into the underside of the wings, in verification of the historic metal of which it is made. Presented in a very high quality wooden case with certificate of provenance. These Pins are entirely hand crafted and finished in England. Minor surface imperfections, barely visible when worn, may exist, but such is the nature of using 75 year old ex-Spitfire metal and only adds to their character, providing a pleasant and rather appropriate aged look.
