What have I got here?
« on: June 01, 2017, 11:39:15 AM »
I have been eyeballing these 2 wings for years and finally took the plunge. Since I am way out of my league here, I am asking y'all more learned members 2 things:

1) what era are they?

2) were they worth $6 a piece?

RAF Air Gunner and Navigator wings. You probably paid the right money...but judge for yourself.

Both are post-WW2 or copies and therefore the price paid was right.

Thanks for the info. At least I didn't get taken. The gentleman I bought them from knows US insignia but was unsure about these. I am guessing they are Post War examples so I guess I will try to get my money back out of them and move on....
