Justin, it appears to be the senior version of the wings discussed here, without the insignia applied.

I finally received 4 of these--I am surprised at how pliable the metal is on each!

If anyone is interested in getting one, let me know!

My guess is someone made a casting from an original and made some copies. They are not finished nearly as nicely as originals.

The individual that gave them to me said she had over 50 of these, so that could definitely be a possibility. Thanks!

Yes that isn't even old lead(which will take on a pleasing grey patina), it is pretty new.
