    Various WWII medals - American, German and Japanese

    These medals were found in my grandfather's basement, whose uncle apparently served as a POW prison camp guard in New Mexico. Where the American wings came from I have no idea. Was looking for input as to identity and appraisal.

    The US Pilot wings with the STERLING stamp would be a good indication of WW2. I'm NO expert and would have to check to say YES.

    I'm Back and they are WW2 USAAF Pilot wings.

    I'm thinking that your best pieces are the Japanese Navy Helmet Anchor, the German Naval breast eagle insignia and the US Aviation wings. You should have no trouble finding buyers for all of them, but these 3 will go quickest. Not enough to go on vacation in Hawaii, but a nice weekend getaway near home, for sure.

    AZphil, have yet to price my items, let alone consider selling them. Its hard to find it your heart the will to market artifacts like these. I mean times are tough and I need the money but I'm not about to haphazardly toss them into the wind. These are pieces of history, remnants of an ideology that cost so many lives, an idea my grandfather fought against on the front lines of Italy, the 88th infantry, so I don't take lightly the true worth of these items. I'd like to see them sold fairly to someone who would appreciate them, not sell them to a hate group, or hoard them in some closet. Just clarifying for you. And Wagriff, yeah! Its mint condition, having exchanged directly from the hands of a pow to my grandfather's uncle, who promptly kept them away in which was apparently proper conditions. In my mind its a museum quality piece.
