    You got a good buy at $30.00. This type of pin back is very desireable. I don't know anyone who would pay $475.00 for one like that. I have seen several wings of that style and vintage go for around $80.00 to $130.00. Either way this is a very nice set of wings and one I don't have.

    They appear to be a good AMICO set. This type of wing badge is somewhat rare
    compared to other 'specialty' wings such as Bombardier, Aerial Gunner,
    Navigator, etc.........

    $30 was a great bargain. As to value, a quality pinback maker-marked
    observer like this, I think $150/$200 would be more appropriate.
    IMO, the site you refer to tends to mis-identify and overprice
    some of their U.S. stock - I would never pay $475, and
    I don't know anyone who would either !
    Regards,
