wings in particular, noted as Bell because of their pin assemblies, have a disturbed organic surface to their fletching as well,
more pronounced in this.

, with the comparison shots with the later Orber design wings etc., as I get time. Thank you again MGHCAL, for making this possible
with your diligent collecting efforts and willingness to allow me this opportunity from your most excellent collection.
I contacted MGHCAL and he has agreed to allow me to share the information regarding the pilot who wore the silverplated brass flat base shield wings.
That information will be forthcoming when I am provided with it...
Thank you Gentlemen and Lady Collectors and Blessings to You All As Always, in Your Collecting and Preservation of History...

Here are a couple more photos of men wearing the wings. The first is from the George Field book for class 44-B:

The second was from the George Field Wings Over America (blue) book. I tried last night to find a larger portrait of General Brett that more clearly showed his wing but came up empty. I also looked in another couple of Wings Over America books for a better photo of him but the ones I found had him in a different uniform with what looked like a bullion wing.

Those are absolutely the same wings and they are splendid, what a wonderful find! Thank you so much for sharing and adding to the record of a rare and sought-after wing type!
Thanks and glad to share ! This wing was one of the reasons I bought the grouping. I have his medals, scrapbook, documents ETC. Is a very complete group. I wasnt sure what the wing was worth when I bought it, but I knew it was scarce.
