This old worn leather wallet case belonged to a pilot.

The front is embossed with the words....OUR LADY OF THE SKIES CHAPEL Y. INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. This NYC chapel opened in 1955 when the airport was Idlewild. It became John F. Kennedy JFK in 1963.

The case contains a stamped silvertone metal image of the Virgin Mary over an airplane propeller. The prayer under it is embossed in gold. Says...Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee, Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Case is marked MADE ITALY. It's leather with hand-sewn edges. The piece shows wear / tear and a whole lot of prayer.

Seems like this pilot wanted to be closer to heaven than a mere plane could fly.
