Here is the basic sterling US Army Parachute Badge by Harry Sugerman. Note the "S" inside the shield with what looks like a crown on top. These are fairly scarce and were made before the IOH numbering system went into effect. I have only observed basic wings with this marking: no senior and no master parachutist. Any of you have any? Also notice the circle mark at the bottom. I have no idea what this was for, but it is seen on all of the early Sugerman marked wings that I have encountered.

Here are two Parachute Badges marked with S-21 for SUSCO or Harry Sugerman. These are both marked STERLING and later known examples are marked 1/20th SF SUSCO S-21. I do not have any information about this company's current status. Note: the markings are different and the senior is flat back and the basic wings are hollowed out which makes me believe that these are from different runs and times. I do not have a master S-21 STERLING to post, so perhaps one of you other collectors can show that one.

After a lot of looking, I finally found a Master Parachutist Badge marked S-21 in STERLING made by Sugerman or SUSCO. That completes the set of three. So they do exist and are out there.
