big daddy of USN wings

Recommended Posts

Finally, I picked up a 14K USN wing....and one that has been engraved!

 

Says "God is my co-pilot" and has his initials. Marked 14K down on the anchor and has a hallmark I havent figured out yet on the top.

 

This has been a hole in the collection for some time, but not anymore.

Holy cow, Patrick this is outstanding catch! I love the engraving motto! I have no clue what MPB stands for…


Best regards

Howdy,

 

Those are his initials, I believe. The wings are to shiny to get a good scan, but the engraving is very nicely done. My feeling is that these may be WWII into Korean war period.

My vote is Korea... maybe this guy was a MIG KILLER!!!

 

Very Nice - I have seen a few but $$$$ so I have not yet got one.
