any rear photos? why would they use a silver star when silver represents 5 awards...is that for his fifth combat jump?

 

I'm no expert on these, I don't collect AB anymore, but I know there's a lot of fakes of jump wings with stars floating around. was it acquired through a good source?

 

I have also moved this to the Wings forum where you will get more replies from those who focus on them

The wings look OK. I think the jump star is dark bronze but the flash reflection made it look like silver. However, it's kind of strange that the soldered jump star is off center. I have a couple of jump wings with soldered stars and have seen many wings with soldered stars and they're dead centered.
