  1. i really love those interwar uniforms. Late 1920s style wing with US/Wing set up before they moved the US to the top of the lapel in the 30s. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Mel discusses the Letter wings in the first thread Patrick posted. They did make some. They are very rare.
  3. Second what everyone said. It is hard to find information illustrated with this much detail. Thank you Chris.
  4. Congratulations! Those are really an excellent example. And yes, as far as all my research, E for Flight Engineer. As the big four bombers entered the Pacific, especially B-29s, this would be in more demand. And hat tip to Luke for figuring out the most economical way to supply different rates.

  5. That’s new. Thankfully they look distinctively horrible. Thanks Mel for the alert. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I can't really tell what the intended finish was. Yes, you are right, wing is norsid pattern with those shoulders. No sure what to make of it.
  7. Fantastic with that beautiful maker label sewn on.
  8. Hi Bill, Admittedly WWI embroidered badges are not my strength, but just looking at appearances and construction, I would not feel very confident about these wings. I base this on the very loose construction of the embroidery and the sewing construction of the badge. Have you tried blacklighting them as well? I am sure more experienced folks will respond as well. Cheers, Tod
  9. Great contributions as always Chris
  10. Really nice group. If you are going to part it, do as little parting as possible. In other words, if you are after an award, sell the rest as a whole. If you keep the awards then sell all the aviation as a whole. As others said, for a group like this, the preference would be to keep it all together. Thanks for sharing. Many of the folks here would be interested in buying this group so I can see why they would not want to openly discuss value depending on how you decide to sell. Cheers, Tod
  11. To me that appears like an NS Meyer restrike with a poorly stamped and incorrect Dondero hallmark.
  12. Hi, I posted this thread in the Women's Services forum but also posting this here. Here file was sold on ebay document by document. I was able to round up the majority of the file but a few docs escaped. Hoping to pull her file back together again. Please let me know who has the rest and if we can discuss. Thread here: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/304483-evelyn-c-fletcher-wasp-military-file-reassemble/?hl=%2Bevelyn+%2Bfletcher thanks Tod
