82nd 504 DUI and other items

Article about: Odd ! Could you show a photo of the reverse of the wings as well ? British wings have a unique design, and a wrap-around pin. Perhaps they are of early U.S. manufacture ? ! Normally, British

    I'm 3:30-11:30, but I like to unwind a bit before bed, plus, I have never
    been one who could jump in and fall asleep immediately.........!

    a little grouping I put together. The wings are British made and the 82nd patch is a snow back.

    I like the captain rank. I've been looking for some like that to match some 2 LT bars I have. Nice finds.

    Hi Burt this was the first time I have seen a captain bar like this . Do you know when they used them . Steve I got the wings about ten years ago and was walking threw a gun show and showed one guy the wings .next thing I know I have three guys trying to buy the wings from me. The funny thing is the first guy I showed them to did the old well they are British made no body wants British made wings let me tell you what I will do I don't need them but I'll buy the wings from you so you don't get stuck. I also polished the wings my thought is they deserve to shine and I'm not going to sell them. Gary

    Lol - He wanted them real bad ! -

    ( British insignia and wings are very rarely made of sterling silver,
    and are always marked as such if they are. )

    Gary, are there any markings on the Captains bars ? Other than
    the 'coffin lid' style, they may be WWI. These are supposed
    to resemble bullion.

    Steve the wings are marked sterling with a brass pin. No marks on the captions bar.
