Need info on Bombardier wings


Recommended Posts

I have these wings from a friend of mine. Two Bombardier wings. Both are marked "sterling".

 

One is two piece construction and it is marked "RB"? above the sterling. What maker?

 

The second is "sterling" and one piece.

 

Both are straight pin backed.

 

I get to keep the better of the two, which I believe is the two piece one. How well did I do?

Well I would say that they are both good, the 2 piece is "LGB" (Balfour). I agree it's the better of the two !

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.

I think “Paul C” is spot-on with his evaluation (as usual)!

 

They’re both nice authentic WWII era bombardier badges... but the LGB hallmarked badge with riveted bomb commands roughly $20 to $30 more in replacement value...
