    All are WWII era 'Sterling' pieces IMO, except for the ribbon. The eagle is a pilot
    wing badge, usually made by 'Robbins' or 'LeVelle'. The large disc is epalette
    insignia ( two were worn ). The smaller wing is a 'sweetheart' item - or for
    use on civilian clothes. The 'winged prop' is collar insignia ( only one is
    worn ). The C.A.P. ribbon is for '1000 hours'.

    I have assembled a small selection of U.S. Civil Air Patrol items. Most of it
    came as one group, but I have added two post-war wings, two patches
    and a rank pin.........
