I believe these are from the 60's and were made to be worn on the USAF mess dress unfirom.

Yes, these are Air Force mess dress wings and could have been made much later than the 1960's. Possibly made as late as the 1980's when the USAF phased out the black & white mess dress jackets and went to a dark blue mess jacket. Insignia made for that blue jacket is done on a dark blue background and not black as these.
For 3 bucks, you got a nice deal. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif

US Army SOC Free Fall (HALO) jump wings (Silver version is Basic; Subdued version is Master). I think these jump wings are relatively new.
