There you are...up in the air. Parachute flying overhead. Maybe a pink smoke cloud. Adrenalin pumping. Crowds cheering below. And then you have to find your buddy up there and hand him a wood baton in mid-air. Piece of cake.
The U.S. Army Parachute Team, nicknamed the Golden Knights, does it for fun. They're a demonstration and competition parachute team of the United States Army. They put on shows performing all kinds of mid-air maneuvers to the thrill of the crowds below. Once on the ground, each jumper is introduced and the team usually presents a team memento to a distinguished selectee from the audience.
This rare wood baton was presented to some lucky 'distinguished' recipient. It's made of solid oak and the plaque says..."PASSED IN MID - AIR BY MEMBERS OF THE U.S. ARMY PARACHUTE TEAM GOLDEN KNIGHTS".
The baton in stand measures 13 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high. The baton is 1 1/2 inches wide. It's in excellent vintage condition. Makes a great paperweight, conversation piece, something to pass to your buddy while your feet are firmly planted on the ground.
