    Default WWII era? Senior Pilots Wings GEMSCO G-2

    I have these Senior Pilots wings marked GEMSCO A.G.O. G-2 on the back. I am pretty confident they are authentic, but are they WWII issue? I have seen this same wing on other sites, but they don't say the age. The wings are 3" long. Thanks!

    The code number G2 was used by Gemsco, Miford, Ct. and this code was used only from the 1950's-the present. Sorry but a very fine wing indeed! After the war all metal insignia had a two digit code assigned to them.

    Ditto. These bronze wings are usually 1/20th silver plated, though not all
    are marked as such. As a rule, any wings with numeric codes are
    post-war/modern era pieces, as stated.

    The design above is the same as what 'Amico' or 'LGB' (Balfour)
    and 'N.S. Meyer' used during WWII...........

    Bummer! I was hoping it was WWII era. Is there any way to date the wings....like from the Korean War, Vietnam, etc? thanks

    My guess is 60's or 70's - 'Vietnam era' is appropriate.............
