1940s B-17 Bomber Pin, all brass, locking pinback

Solid brass, one-piece, the design reminds me of art of US aircraft in adventure books before the war, when no official photos had yet been published. The B17 was the only known American bomber at the time of Pearl Harbor. The nose is not exactly like B-17 as actually produced. 3 1/4 length and wingspan. The locking pin back suggests it is an older piece, and not modern repro.
