These are a reproduction pair of Viper Pilot Captain collar rank pips, as seen on the new hit sci-fi TV series Battlestar Galactica worn by the Viper Pilots (gold). They were worn by Apollo and Starbuck after their promotions. These are made of a heavy cast metal alloy in a gold tone finish. They are not the thin cheaply made pins offered by some other sellers. It has been stored in a smoke and pet free environment.
