Help with Aerial Gunner Identification

Recommended Posts

I received the gunner wing today and after having to wash off the smell of cigarette smoke (ugh), i have been trying to identify the possible maker/ distributor/ reseller. It wasn't until I had it in hand that I realized it was a perfect match to the Orber Observer wing I picked up a few months ago. Is this gunner an Orber wing?

Research SMILO IIRC... YMMV ;)

 

EDIT just my from the hip guess... as I am waaaay out of touch.

I think it is an Orber pattern wing. Orber had the four notches on both shoulders, and started with the circular hallmarks but I believe many Orber pattern wings can be found with the straight Sterling mark like this gunner wing. I don't know if the dies exchanged owners or if Orber just changed out the pressing part.

No idea but I really like the Orber Observer! I just picked one up with the hallmark wiped out.

 

Does seem to be a real similar stamping

 

Nice wing!
