Sweeheart Wings? Mil? Non-Mil?


Recommended Posts

Found at the flea market, not sure what this is, any help would be appreciated.

 

I forgot to throw a coin down for size reference, the lower part w/ the wings is dime sized.

 

THANKS

Judging by the wing & prop on it, I'd say they were earlier than 1940s. That pattern wing & prop with the pointed wingtips and more figure-8 shaped prop was a 20s-30s thing. By the 40s, the wingtips were more blunted and the prop tips became more pointed.

In memory of 1LT Julius C. Goldman, XO of F/330th, 83rd Infantry Division 1944-45.

Looking for ETO/MTO P-47 and Tactical Reconnaissance Unit photographs and any items associated with WWII Jewish fighter pilots.
