Jenkel Jewelers Flight Surgeon Wings
« on: October 17, 2014, 07:45:27 PM »
Have had these wings for a long time now and I just dug them back out of a tub. Have been taking pictures of the hallmarks on my wings and I came across this one.

I have not been able to find too much information about the manufacturer.


These are 2 inch wings and I have several other sets of flight surgeon wings that came in a group that I will post later. There were 4 sets of flight surgeon wings in the group, 2 were full 3 inch size, one N.S. Meyer and the other LGB Balfour. Both are 1/20 Gold filled and then 2 pairs of 2 inch wings, the Jenkel Jewelers marked and a Balfour pair. They are all gold in color, with the Jenkel wings looking almost gilt washed.

Very cool.... on more than one level. An infrequently encountered manufacturer plus a style of wing that wasn't around for that long before being superseded by the standard silver variant. I like it!

I got lucky one day and this grouping appeared that had 4 sets of Flight surgeon wings with it. The grouping had a total of 8 pairs of wings. I am currently researching the person to see if they were his. He was a 3 war vet. WW2, Korea, Vietnam. joined in 43, retired in 65...
