USAAF and USN WW2 era hallmarks
Posted 25 June 2008 - 08:32 PM
I started a small library of hallmarks of wings as I find them and posted them on my website here: I know a few of the rather rarer hallmarks have escaped me. Most of these hallmarks are from wings in my collection with a few images "borrowed" off of ebay
Not a complete listing, but as I find them, I try to post them. I know a few other websites have some nice listing of wing and insignia hallmarks. Maybe they can be added to this thread. Also, (if I may) the WAF forum has a super nice detailed listing of companies that were involved in making wings, medals and insignia from about 1917 to yesterday.

My friend Iain from the land of "shrimps on the barbi" and vegamite also has a very nice site--but I have to watch him carefully as he keeps stealing my good images...just kidding Iain!
And Paul Conrad has a very nice site as well with some fantastic wings and information.
With this and other internet forums, these webpages, and a library of these wing books you can be as much an expert as anyone else.
