Basic Wings Question

Recommended Posts

The reverse "sterling" mark. Shame the roller catch is missing on this one. Appears to be a somewhat common problem.

 

Is there a place or dealer that has a box of these small rollers? I would be curious if anyone knows or might see these at the larger shows like SOS. I would pay for any obviously but would need the correct one for the style of catch. Hoping... ;)

 

Love the patina that silver takes on over the years! Enjoy.

Here's a Smilo & Sons Navigator Wing. The wing pattern appears to be similar to the September 1941 contract seen on the pilot badges. As the navigator rating came into existence a year later, I assume this wing circa 9/42 or thereabouts?

 

Sharp details and a clean strike!

A close up of the wing details. With the light catching all the cuts, it appears almost diamond-cut to the eye.

And, my other wing that is missing the roller part of the catch. :(
