WWII Juarez Bombardier:  This is a Outstanding World War Two Era USAAF Juarez Pattern Bombardier Wing.  A Nice Genuine “STERLING” hallmarked badge, with the complete pin back assembly.  (These are typically missing the small Rotator on the Pin Catch.)  The “Juarez” tag comes from the original design (Wing Pattern), which was produced across the border in Mexico.  We had a high concentration of Air Force Training Bases in the Southwest during W.W. II.  It became a popular pattern due to the fairly unique broad wingspan.  This is a cleanly struck, full size (3-1/4”) wing, that has honest signs of age, but only slight signs of use/wear.  Another great United States Army Air Forces (A.A.F.) Wing that is uncommon, and in this condition, would be very difficult to upgrade. (SOLD)

caawingx.jpg (103476 bytes)

UNUSUAL WWII U.S.A.A.F. Sterling Wing!Unauthorized United States Army Air Forces Wing.  I have only seen a couple of these, and it is my understanding that it is some kind of unofficial insignia that the aircrew and pilots were playing around with.  Good Condition, “Sterling” marked, pin back badge, with some wear to the highpoints.  It is clearly a WWII period metal uniform devise, that is a bit large for a sweetheart pin, at 2.75”, but this is obviously possible as well.  There is also a Naval Aviation equivalent, with an Anchor and USN vs. the Army Crest, that is shown in the book “Navy Wings of Gold”.  I am not sure if this could also be some kind of Aviation Award or Qualification Badge. ($75)
