USAF Command Pilot Wing marked "Silver-Filled" and S-21.

What did the S-21 represent and from what period would these wings

belong? Korea or Vietnam era?

The S-21 is the manufacturer's code. Off hand I don't know which one that is, but I'm sure someone here has that info.

Judging by the fact they are silver filled and not sterling, I'd say late 1960's or newer.

I agree with the 1960's (or later) since it was about mid 60's there was a swtich to the three digit codes.

WWII or earlier no marks for dating.

Pre 1954 but not always used - letters only

1954 to 1964 two types examples 2F, or 6D

1964 on one letter and two numbers example W32 - *************** Gallery which is my hallmark.

These are similar dates I have discussed and read in a few publications but have never seen anything offical on this topic. I understand these came about via a letter from the IoH. Can you shed additional light on this topic...

 

 

 

Thanks
