Here is a screw-back Air Corps/ USAAF lapel button, tiny as you can see. No maker's mark (where would it fit?); details on the prop and wings are ok for such a small piece.  Does anyone know anything about this button? Are there any others with different devices as small as this one?

That one is tiny! I found an AAF one that I missed last night. It is pretty small but not as small as yours. I will post a picture tonight if it is alright that I add to your thread.

 

Thanks for showing this one....Kat

Whoa, that is tiny!

 

I am kind of surprised by how fragile it looks. It's almost a miracle that the props haven't broken off from wear.
