Hi guys,
My goal for today’s Chicago Militaria show was to comeback home with Navy Wings from WWII. Let me point out that my Wings knowledge is extremely limited; however I was going by the hardware feel, so I would like to know how I did in your eyes…

Got that right Gary!

Here are a few of my Balfour Navy Wings... everything you see is made by Balfour. Robert next time your out looking see if you can find the same wing but also marked STERLING. They are very nice!

Enjoy
