Hello

 

I picked these up and do not know if they are Pre-ww2 or WW2?

Marked sterling.

somebody drilled holes in them.

Any idea of the maker?

Thank You

Tony

Normally the obliteration in this style had been done by Orber.

Orber. I dontknow the full story but they got into some legal troubles and the name Orber had to be obliterated before they were sold?

I think? I have one where the whole hallmark has been dug or drilled out.

Looks lke someone was going to make a bracelet or necklace out of it.

Nice wing. Im going to go with ww2 what Costa says.

He knows more than I do about these.

WWII...Yes. I understood the US Army would not issue a wing with a maker's name or logo at one time to Graduates of courses...Orber obliterated their logo.
