I came across this today and took it. looks to be a personalized wing that a Jewish pilot had made up. it is 3'in made by AE Co. so took a chance on it.

Could they have belong to the Jewish air Force, formed in the late 40's? I watched a documentary on Netflix about them. Most were ex us servicemen. Very interesting.

Interesting badge. Perhaps the Estate buyer can shed some light on who the Estate belonged to. The embryonic Israeli Air Force did have a number of former USAAF pilots flying for them. It sure looks nice! Bobgee
