Gaspare,

Look up "WW2 Command Pilot Wings" and you will find many examples that vary in minor details. Some probably a lot rarer than others.

too easy Dave grin... Well I wanted to see what guys had in their collections first. Plus looking for sterling version..

I have a small collection of dies.. This was offered to me,,,but way too much money [over $1K.!]
- My opinion,, this is not worth it,,well over a thousand? and not really ring related so,, guess someone else will get it .

But a great set and in good condition,,,probably still able to produce wings!!

for those that collect wings two books I would recommend getting if you don't have them already 1) Silver Wings .Pinks&Greens by Jon A Maguire 2) More Silver Wings.Pinks&Greens by Jon A.Maguire.
