Greetings Costa and Members!

I recieved the Gunner wing today. Its heavy. Solid built. I think they made it be soft in the details

as this one is in better shape than the one on Bobs site here....

I read here on the forum many times from experienced collectors that ww2 wings were used through the korean war years. And that they didnt change the style of wing badges for the airforce until 1955 or 1956.

So some wings we think are ww2 may have been korean war or made after the war into the 1950's.

Not that that matters to me as Im really collecting ww2 or just after style wings. Not the alpha numeric numbered ones or the ones that came after the change in designs.

The older ones are what Im seeking. Preferably pinbacked and hallmarked.

But not ww1 wings as thats a big leauge wing collectors arena.

If I get burned a couple times for a couple c notes..

I can still just learn from it........

I cannot imagine getting burned on a ww1 wing where thousands are involved.

Whew!!!

The gunner wings should be fine. I've never seen a wing in that Meyer pattern that didnt look worn lol. The Bell bombardier are very nice as well. Good catches!
