N.S.Meyer Sterling Silver Senior Aviator Wings
« on: September 19, 2014, 01:52:17 PM »
Here is a nice pair of N.S. Meyer Sterling silver Senior Aviator wings..

If I rememer correctly these are Mid 1950's manufactured. I will have to get a better look at the hallmark but I am pretty sure it was mid 50's

What we need is a definitive book on hallmarks alone.. There are several good references out there with them listed, but to have them all compiled in one book would really be great. This of course would cover all types of metal insignia, wings, DUI's, collar brass, ect..

Hmmm..

Perhaps a new project... :P

It sounds like a rather daunting task...

Perhaps in another lifetime, or when I retire (for the 3rd time)....
