Thanks for the sweet editions John and you are right there have been few medical wings posted. I will need to change that... wish me luck in 2012.

Since nothing has been added to this cool thread for a while, I thought I would bump it back to the top
with the completion of my Amico Type I Flight Surgeon Trio.
Top 1 5/8" Cap size (early hallmark)
Mid 2.0" Shirt size (late hallmark)
Bottom 3.0" Coat size (early hallmark)

Best, John



Hey John,

I know you love "the hunt" as well as I do, so keep your eyes open for one more tiny Amico hallmarked Flight Surgeon wing to add to your terrific grouping. I assume it was designed as a civilian lapel wing or sweetheart piece as it's only 1 & 1/8 inches wide.

Reverse of the 1 & 1/8 inch Amico Flight Surgeon wings. The gilt example appears to have never had a pin or catch applied.

I have not got into bullion [yet] but these came my way cheap.
Any danger these could be right. I did not like the look of the back . 2 maybe 3 types of bullion thread pluss the black cotton which I have read is not a good sign.

This thread was started by John Cooper six years ago and is very worthy of being revisited.  Please feel free to share images of your Flight Surgeon and Flight Nurse badges here. 

 

Graham's last post was a very nice bullion Flight Surgeon example.  Here's a variant bullion example.  Possibly British made? Or maybe CBI?

Thanks Russ. I have been wondering about that wing of mine for a couple of years now. I always thought the snakes looked a bit week, not as nice as the one you have  posted that's for sure. Still glad to know you think it is OK.

 

Thanks,  Graham

It's been awhile since we've seen any new additions to this informative old thread. If you've recently acquired a Flight Surgeon or Flight Nurse wing, this might be a good thread to share your images.

 

I picked up a Meyer pattern Flight Surgeon badge identical to Paul's example illustrated back in frame #22...

I especially like the "Myrgold" hallmarks on both the wing and the applied caduceus...

John, that silver LG Balfour flight surgeon wing is one that I have perused the offerings in our avocation for a long time to acquire. It is exquisite, unique, rare and beautiful. Well done my friend
