Navy Wings - help!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I’m having a hard time to assign those unmarked wings to a maker. Please note hollow points in anchor hooks on reverse (as well as hollow shield). One note, similar hardware was used by GEMCO on various badges (like for example USMC Pistol Expert).

Hi Robert,

 

Your wing exhibits features of several wings, most notably AMCRAFT and GEMSCO. My guess is it is a foreign made wing, sometime in the late '30's or 40's, but I have no idea where.

 

 

Cheers

Gary

Hi Gary,

Not an easy nut to crack. My eyes hurt from looking at different variants, but i really can't pinpoint this badge to the specific maker. Oh well, I’m just happy to have this strange fruit in my collection... ;)


Best regards

Robert
