From some of my other postings recently, you may have read about my loooooong, unsatisfied passion for a WWI wing in my collection. I have been thinking really hard about which "type" or "style" to get as I can only afford ONE. My question is this: is there a certain type of wing that has a better chance or more likely to have been worn upon the chest of a flyer in Europe during WWI?
I realize that unless you have a documented grouping with photos and other evidence, it is impossible to know for sure. As far as the bullion wings, were these more likely to have been made somewhere in Europe unlike the Dallas type wings that seem to be fairly plentiful?
I also realize that many wings were probably purchased in the US before the flyer left for overseas. Was there a prefered type amongst overseas pilots? Please forgive my question if it seems somewhat naive, but I am just trying to choose the right wing for my collection, one which has the best chance of actually being there...any hep or input is appreciated.
