I picked these up a few years ago and can find virtually nothing about them..I recently discovered this great Forum and am learning quite a bit about wings. Any help would be appreciated. I believe the hallmark is for Whitehaed and Hoag...Thanks in advance !!

Those  are civilian pilot wings, probably used by a contract carrier for the mail. I would SWAG they would date from the 1920's or 30's.

Patrick....I posted this wing on that site years ago and have not gotten any replies. I thought someone on that site would know more about the wing since there are pictures of some pilots wearing a very similar wing
