This is a 2019 SOS purchase of mine

 

It also came with a large photo album of Pensacola NAS from 1919 with lots of HS-1 shots.  

 

The Wings are early Robbins Naval Aviator wings with the "European" style hallmarks on one side and "sterling" on the other with a Tiffany style catch. 

 

If you compare these wings with the ones on the photo in his Naval Aviator ID book, they appear to be the same ones.

Naval Aviation Pilot and Naval Aviator ID books to an enlisted pilot, later officer who served with Torpedo Squadron 8 from 1940-1942. He missed the Battle of Midway , but saw lots of action during the battle for Guadalcanal in 1942.

The certificate above is not WWII era. They do show though that these ID books were issued well after the war.  I remember Dad telling me he showed it to gate sentries for a number of years.
