Pre-WWII Navy Wings, Are They Real?


Recommended Posts

Trying to find out if these are original or repro. The front is similar to other verified wings in my collection, but the back is more reflective and makes me think these are reproductions. Also, the markings are raised? Let me know your thoughts, thanks

I think it could be ok. Some general questions, does the pin open up ~80-90 degress? It almost looks like the catch was replaced.

 

If it were me, I would do a search for Meyer-metal marked wings. You can do the comparison there.

 

Mostly, the restrike NS Meyer wings have a large incised "STERLING" mark.

 

Better photos would help, but as I said, it doesn't immediately scream "restrike" to me.
