    Hi folks
    Can somebody give me some feedback on this set of bullion Japanese parachutist wings please. It came from a long time para wings collector, who obtained it from the Frank Fahey collection in the 1960s. I'm not expert enough to confirm that it is actually WW2 period and wonder if it is a post war repro that may have been available by the 1960's?

    Your thoughts please?
    cheers

    Not very convincing in both quality (Pakistan Nazi eagle level) and design. Quality is quite substandard for Japanese bullion work and the tinker did not seem to realize what the red pentagon lines at the back represent, which is a fatal mistake and contravention of laid down specs. The red is supposed to be a complete circle.

    The 13th Oct 1943 launch drawing and photos of typical Japanese bullion workmanship attached.
