    After all the money, time and deep study involved collecting these,
    I'm quite aware of several fakes that I've been stung by !

    - You have just pointed out that there is at least one in that display case !

    That particular airship wing was only $100.00, where a true original should be ten times that or more!
    Well, at least you didn't pay the price of an original. If you ever decide to get into WWI wings, drop me a line any time if you have any questions. I am by no means an "expert" (don't like that word any way) but I have studied and handled quite a few over the past several years...

    Thank you both for the knowledgeable insight into the pitfalls regarding makers of insignia. I have found it very interesting.

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    I would be interested to see more.

    I only ever owned one pair of US pilots wings. They were British made by "Firmin, London" and were solid silver. Long gone now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    ,,,,,,,....Something like this Ade ?



    This is an extremely rare wing. The only one I've ever seen, anywhere !

    I know "F&S" must mean "Firmin & Son".
    The anchor is for "Birmingham" I think, and the lion
    represents London Assay Office.............

    Love to know the year the last letter stands for ! !





    Regards,



    Steve.

    Hi Steve, that is the type.

    The date letter is for 1943.

    "A" = 1925 running to "Z" which is 1949.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That's great !
    Thanks so much Ade ! !

    I've been wondering for years, as my antique pocket watch book
    only covers British silver marks up to 1925 ! !





    Here is another neat wing you might enjoy, although it is post WWII............

    Do you recognize the logo ? ! ( It's one of my favorites for this reason ! )





    Regards,



    Steve.

    Ade,

    I read on another thread that you like sweetheart items.

    All 2" or less................ ( Except one US army pilot = 23/4" )

    Is the Command Pilot Wing in the upper right in the first photo marked Luxenberg?
