Nice additions to your collection! I have always loved the contrast of the silver and gold on the Navy FS wings/

Jason, it looks like you scored well again! Two very nice pre-war Aviator wings! Your USN collection is growing at lightning speed and in a handsome manner. Pretty soon you'll be seeking out Tiffany and BB&B hallmarked examples!

 

All the best,

Russ

Russ,

In time I would love to have examples of them. I know unless I get lucky, there going to be expensive. I think I luck out on the meyer metal wing, it cost me $150.00. Not sure if I over paid on that one .

Thanks for the relpies everone,

Jason

Guys,

I figured I would post the rest of my collection in this thread and I will add to it as I get them.

I bought this Navigation wing last month, I did post it for debate.

The next few wings were my first ones that I bought from Donna Wosk a few years ago.

I found this navy wing, its marked 1/20GK ON STERLING. Does anyone know what company might of made this wing?. This one caught my eyes because of the details, the shield has lines running across the top shield and instead of berries it looks like feathering . I could be wrong on the feathering. Does anyone know if these are pre ww2 or just early ww2 ect..?

 

I appreciate the help guys,

 

Jason

GO NAVY! Those are some smokin' wings dude. I'm with Russ on the old Amico mark.

But if I could pick two, those old wings with no berries, they're so hot you need to

store them in a cool place. Good luck!

I haven't seen a Gemsco marked example that otherwise looks like a Vanguard, so thanks for posting that one. The NUS example is also a really nice one but the HH Aircrew are post-58, which is when I understand the pattern changed from fairly plain to detailed feathering, including berries.

 

Regards

Mike

I figured I post the wing that came on a officer white dress uniform here. I also bought one before I got the uniform that came yesterday. The marking are a little different.
