Am I correct in thinking this Navy pilots wing is WWI vintage? No hallmark. Simple pin back that fits into a plain hook.

That looks to be WWI through late 1930's style. If you collect Navy wings you need to get: United States Navy Wings of Gold: From 1917 to the Present by Ron L. Willis

Nice looking wing. Since it is solid with no piercing and open catch , there is a good chance it is a WWI wing. It looks exactly like one on page 16 of " Wings of Gold " .

Yep, it looks like a good WW1 era wing. A lot of them weren't hallmarked. The catch and all look a-ok to me!
