Those are all very nice. I like to study the construction of them; I like those that have two or three chains, very sturdy, tight curb link chains.

Rusty, thanks for sharing those very nice pieces you've collected. You have a terrific eye. Any idea where the flight instructor might have been based?
Paul, thank you for your kind sentiments. Unfortunately, I can't provide you with any additional background on the Flight Instructor who wore those bracelets. They came with a nice set of unmarked gilt pilot wings and a small box of 1930's style collar insignia, but nothing to distinguish a specific school or field. One of these days I'll research this Captain and hopefully come up with additional.

Adding to this one, here is a group I bought on Ebay this fall. It fell thru the cracks, and I picked up the whole lot for $60! Pilots ring, Amico wing, and ID bracelet........
Research was easy on this lot.
1st Lt Roderick Wylie flew P-51's with the 111th Recon Squadron in the ETO. He had 1 confirmed kill vs a Me-109.

Thanks. I'll try and get some extra shots of the ring tonight. It is simply marked Sterling.
