    A rather uncommon pilot wing by 'Orber', who's name was scrubbed,

    A pin back pilot wing in sterling by 'Gemsco N.Y.' - This is not one of the nicest looking
    designs, IMO, but instantly recognisable. Gemsco continues to manufacture
    US military insigia today.........

    Heavy, sterling marked clutch back pilot wing by A.E. Co. This particular wing
    is featured on page 78 of Jon A. Maguire's 'Silver Wings, Pinks And Greens'
    and is characterized by the die flaw on the reverse. I have given it
    the name ''Maguire No. 5''.........
