My Humble Starter Collection


Recommended Posts

These are what I have collected so far. This is a fun hobby. I'm hoping to get to a military show this year, but being in the middle of nowhere makes it difficult.

It looks to me that you are off to a good start. You have some nice jump wings. Every collector begins somewhere. I would suggest reading as much material about parachutist insignia as you can find so that you know what to look for. Learn from others and avoid impulse purchases. There is a wealth of information right here on the forum that you can go through with numerous photographic examples. Look in the Hallmarks and Reference section also. Good luck in your collecting endeavors.  AIRBORNE!

Two new glider rider badges (on top) to add to the collection.

Nice additions.  Your collection is getting far less humble! (Actually it never was humble)

The dished out back AECo wing is a beauty, one of my favourite wing makers.

 

The Amico wing is quite an uncommon style for that maker, which I have been after myself for a number of years now. A very nice addition to your collection, well done!

 

Cheers……John
