General Question on Jump Wings


Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

 

This is not my area of experise/experience. I saw a pair of jump wings at an antique store recently. I was unable to see the back of them, however they are pin back clasp. The case stated WW2 wings.

 

My questions: 1) Did they have them in ww2 or were they of the horizontal pin type, and 2) they wanted $90 for it - Is that a good price?

 

thanks in advance.

This is not my area either and although there have been a few threads that covered jump wings I am sure there are a few collectors that have extensive collections - if one happens to read this post please PM me as I have a question for you.

Jeff,

 

It is hard to say based on the info given, yes the horizontal pin type could be WWII or after. $90 , well it seems a bit high to me personally, but it depends onthe condition, maker etc.

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.

90 bucks for a pinback is WAY too high unless it is hallmarked from a very good company. I sell WWII non hallmarked, other than STERLING, pinback jump wings for between 50 and 75 bucks depending on what I had to give for them. Hallmarked versions go for 150+.

Yes, they had clutch back jump wings during the war..... most collectors associate pin back as being exclusivily WW2 which

is incorrect. Depending on what they are they could be worth what they are asking..... but if they are run of the mill common

wings then.... NO!
