What hallmark on these jump wings? CP or GP??
« on: June 20, 2014, 08:36:47 PM »
Picked these up a few weeks ago. Have not been able to ID the hallmark. Nice set of 60's era wings I believe. I say this because they belonged to a Soldier who joined the Army in 1960. Spent a lot of time in Special Forces and was murdered here in El Paso in the late 70's.

Not sure if the hallmark is CP for Charles Polk or GP for General Products..

Would like your help folks..

Nice patina on those wings...but it's a hallmark I'm not familiar with!

It is General Products. They were authorized makers of jump wings in the 50's.
