10k Gold "I" Wings


Recommended Posts

I haven't been able to track down an ID on this set. What does the "I" stand for? At 5/8" & made out of 10k gold, it's most likely a 'sweetheart' piece. What about for the shirt collar or even a cap? Was it common for servicemen to wear gold insignia?

Value? I might have the chance to pick them up...

To be alone, to have your life in your own hands, to use your own skill, single-handed, against the enemy. It was like the lists of the Middle Ages, the only sphere in modern warfare where a man saw his adversary and faced him in mortal combat, the only sphere where there was still chivalry and honour. If you won, it was your own bravery and skill; if you lost, it was because you had met a better man
