Looks good to me - trouble is, that this insignia is still used today.
( There are many manufacturers of US Para of insignia, but
usually you can't go wrong with sterling marked pieces. )
When you see that, plus a makers name it is easier
to tell if they are WWII or not.
You might be able to pick this one up fairly reasonably because
of the broken pin. It is not unusual though, to find
'field repairs' on pin-back badges, and they are
mostly done with clipped needles.........
Was 25$ a bad price? I got them from a charity store similar to the goodwill, so I am not to sad if they are not WWII since the proceeds went to a good cause. They were marked as jewelry in a case with broaches
I had 2 of these,, one from each uncle who were in the airborne,,,but on my examples the parachute is not hollowed out.

Good wings ww2 original
I posted them on another forum and they think that they are British or Japanese made. If they are sterling they said that they are most likely British and if they are not they are Japanese occupation made.
I am not to sure on the validity of this though
(I am referring to the first pair posted)
British wings have a unique pattern, have a different pin/catch
set-up, and are rarely in sterling. Also, Japanese made
wings are usually always hallmarked.........
