I got this wing in today and it looks to be an LGB make (I think). the thing is the sterling mark in the shield on back--------- its arched. never seen one like this. opinions welcome.

I have often wondered what manufacturer made the "Arched Sterling" jump wings. The front side on this example is like most any of the other more common parachute badges. But I also see that "Arched Sterling" appears on other badges.

Here is an older pinback Combat Medic Badge also with the unknown "Arched Sterling" markings. So I too am curious if anyone might know who the maker is.

A CIB I have with an arched sterling mark.

I also have another of the exact same pattern it that's unmarked.
