Jump Wings by M.Clein Atlanta

Recommended Posts

Very nice example and yes very rare. You have a clean, crisp hallmark on this badge. Most are not that distinct. Alan has some information on this maker that perhaps he will share. Great find!

If you can find them, the company name is normally a bad strike. Nice wing!

The maker's name is H. Clein. They were a jeweler in Atlanta. As you've read above, they are a pretty tough wing to find especially with a decent hallmark. They are WWII vintage. My understanding is that they sold these out of the PX at Fort Benning and were available for purchase for paratroopers visiting Atlanta.

 

I assume this was the one on eBay? If so, you got a great deal.

Nice wing and very scarce. I just noticed that the front of these wings resemble the slightly pancaked chute of the WW2 era Durocharm paratrooper wings.

Absolutely Paramount find! You should be very joyful and thankful to have found such a splendid and rare piece of martial art from the southeast of the United States during World War II. WELL DONE!
