Aviation Sweetheart & Home Front Items


Recommended Posts

I'd like to share my modest collection of aviation-related (mostly) sweetheart and homefront pins. Most are WWII vintage, but a few from before and after the war. I've enjoyed collecting these over the years, but the ever increasing prices make finding a 'bargain' a rare treat.

 

Thanks for looking.

Very impressive collection. Congratulations!

 

Is the BIG USAAF braclet as bulky and heavy as it looks? That seems awfully big for a sweetheart item.

Thanks Craig. The big bracelet is made up of thin (but solid) wafers of sterling silver. It weighs 32g/1.14oz. There's a maker mark, but it's very small.

Great collection. Are the mini wings just ISSUE mini wings or are they made for / as sweetheart items? forgive my ignorence. I posted a picture a while back that shows the soldier wearing the small wing on his overseas hat.
