Post Your Medical Wings!

I suspect that they were part of the stock run of wings that were intended to be gold plated, but when the regulations were changed to silver-colored flight surgeon wings, they were simple not gold plated and sold as they were.

Finally, a nice named flight surgeon bracelet. I was able to look this guy up in the American Medical Association (AMA) but can not show that he was actually a flight surgeon.
Those of you who want to do research on a doctor should use the AMA resources. Every year for the last 100 years or so, they publish a listing of all the MDs in the US. Typical information includes DOB, the name and years of medical School attended, location of practice, military service (if known) and medical specialty. Most large universities will have the AMA books available for reference. In almost all cases, I have been able to find a fair amount of information on a flight surgeon or military medical doctor, and to a lesser extent information on dentists (via the ADA). With a bit of sleuthing, you can follow a doctor's medical career from medical school to retirement.

3” LGB gold Flight Surgeon marked LGB 1/20 10K GF. The caduceus is marked BALFOUR 1/20 10K GF.
That LGB Flight Surgeon has always been one of my favorites. It is a beautiful wing!
