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

Very 1940s. Probably a PX purchase for the wife of an aviation cadet.

Silver will tarnish to a goldish color sometimes before turning black or it was gold plated which was a common practice.

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.

Thanks to all.

 

Am I to understand that wing w/prop items are cadet related?

Not always cadet related, but always flying related.
