Help dating Paratrooper wings please

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I just wanted to see what everyone thought about the age for these paratrooper wings. They are marked "GEMSCO A.G.O. G-2" They are not marked sterling but the pins are 3/8 of an inch long, longer than I would think modern day clutchbacks would be. I wouldn't think that they were WWII or even Korean War but Maybe Vietnam era. What do you think??

I would say they are from the mid to late 1960s.
