This is just a tease for a project I am currently researching.. I don't want to reveal all of the items just yet.

These are two of 4 different pairs of flight surgeon wings that I have in a grouping. The other set was posted and is the 2" Jenkel Jewelers pair.

The top pair of wings are NS Meyer marked.

The bottom pair of wings is an LGB Balfour 1/20th 10 karat gold filled pair.

They both appear to have started out as Observer wings and a gold medical caduceus was affixed to the wings.
