Todays Finds


Recommended Posts

Picked these wings up today, not a bad little catch. Two airbourne jump wings sterling marked, 2 clutch back air corp crew wing both sterling marked and one meyer marked, pilot wing sterling marked, air gunner wing sterling and Belfor marked and a multi piece constructed one, then a 1.5" navy/marine wing sterling/10k marked and maker marked but not sure what the maker is. I had a decent day.

Oooh..... Too bad. Those are Airborne wings, not Airbourne wings. Sorry about that. Maybe the seller will give you a refund.... laughing1.gif

Nack, give me a call.

 

Here is a couple pics of the navy/marine wing they are 1.5" and maker marked on the reverse along with sterling and 10K, must be gold filled. Any thoughts on the maker?

Here is a couple shots of the air gunner, I think this is a pretty early one.

 

That is a very nice Balfour AG wing you have there! I love the quality of the Balfour produced wings... and those rivets!!!
