WWII US Navy Pilot Wing - 10K Solid Gold by H-H


Recommended Posts

I acquired this US Navy Pilot wing about 2 years ago. Most Navy Pilot wings I see for sale are either gold-filled or gold-toned base metal. No telling how scarce 10K solid gold wings are. This wing is die struck, measures 2 3/4" wide, and was made by Hilborn-Hamberger. I have another US Navy Pilot wing that is 10K solid gold. It was made by Balfour and measures 2" wide. Enjoy the images.

George,

 

Very nice HH Navy wing in top shape! I have been recently considering branching out a bit more in the Navy area as far as makers are concerned. Currently 99% of my Navy wings are all made by Balfour which I am also expanding to include post WW2 into Korea and maybe a bit later i.e. 1B marked...

 

Cheers

John
