I love the bullion work! I must say I find Navy FS wings to be very attractive... they really standout.

Cheers
John

Thanks Guys,
Here's another one. These two jackets are named and dated to a USPHS man.
Bullion work is similar as the other one.

I just put this tunic (with these wings) in the 'for sale' section. It's a nice set with silver/gold bullion details.

Hello
This wing came along, but only for a short stay to visit, because I'm not a collector of wings.

HAVE FUN
Michael

WWI bullion wings named to H.C. Hammond on a 1918 dated blouse. 3.5" and a fairly thick wing. Does anyone have any info on this pilot??

Coat worn by USN Commander Joseph M. Jayne with detailed padded bullion wings.  

Cmdr. Jayne was Naval Aviator #9659 and received his wings on 4 Nov 1941, a month before Pearl Harbor and our entry into the war.

This is a Naval Aviators bullion wing that came off a January 1937 dated Aviation green coat for an Aviation Cadet, Scott Hawkins (Naval Aviator 5107) who won his wings 12 Feb 1937. The wings measure 93.5mm. I have another Aviation green coat with an identical wing worn by Robert M. Stanley, an Aviation Cadet ( NA 4967) who won his wings 3 Nov 1936, Stanley was later a test pilot for Bell and was the first American to fly a jet aircraft.

Last weekend, I picked up this bullion Aviator wing at the Tempe Military Show. I normally associate bullion Aviator wings with three "XXX" style stars in the upper shield with WWII and later. This example is considerably different with two rolls of X's, totaling six stars, on an oversize wing which is very similar in design to a 1920's - 1930's style wing.  Your opinions are most welcome...

This shield and shoulders protrude significantly...which gives it a very three dimensional look.
