Nice wing Jason! Various bullions certainly age differently. The contrast in patina sure makes for very defined look.

Wow more great additions to this wonderful thread. I have been wanting at least one example of a bullion navy wing but just have not pulled the trigger yet. This post and the fact I have a navy display case next to my desk begging to have some bullion wings.

Thanks Russ!

I picked up a couple of unusual USN bullion Aviator wings at Bob Chatt's West Coast Militaria Show earlier this month and though I'd share them. Here's a WWII era wing sewn on gray cloth.

Russ,

These two "drop dead gorgeous" beauties are screaming middle to late 1920s to me.
So if you ever wish to part with either one you now know who to contact. :love:

Cliff

Pictured left to right is LCDRs Bruce G. Leighton, and Richard S. Byrd.

I AGREE WITH cLIFF THAT THESE 2 SETS ARE PROBABLY MID 20'S..GREAT WITH THE PHOTOS.
