Service pilot wings

I found these in a group of insignia I picked up this past weekend and am skeptical about them. The back has me the most concerned because I don't know if that's the sin of it being a reproduction/recast or if this was someone's sloppy way of adding the clutch backs. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Look like a cast copy to me of an Amcraft pattern wing. It almost looks like someone made an impression of the face of a wing, and then poured molten metal into the impression. I don't even know if that is possible, but if it were this is what I would envision you would get. The extra metal spans what should be the open gaps between the shield and the shoulders.

Thank you for the information! Is there any market for something like is?

No. Somebody might buy it for a filler until a good one comes along, but they are almost worthless.
