Luxenberg Aircrew Wings


Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody!

 

I have these Luxenberg Aircrew wings...they measure 3 1/8 inches wide and the shield appears to be a seperate piece. The person I bought them from says they test as silver. What are the opinions on these wings?

 

Thanks a lot,

 

John

Nice wing in a very popular pattern. Match the pattern of your wing to this aircrew wing made by Blackington who produced wings for several companies.

My pictures sometimes come out dark, but then again this wing has some patina.

 

Here is another shot that hopefully comes out a bit brighter.

 

These wings are sure impressive in hand with the detail to the feathering.

The Aircrew wings were made from Observer wings with a button top soldered on to it. Very common to do that back then. Observer wings were the base for lots of different designs. That way you only had to make one die and would have several different wings.
