Tiny Vintage Wwii Usn Naval Aviator Wings Solid 10k Gold Nr:
I'm a goldsmith. Time to let go of some WWII Era Aviator wings I've had for the last 25 years. They are all in the same exact state I got them in at estate sales. I can polish them up if the buyer wishes it, of course....but my instinct has always been to leave them as I found them. All are either Sterling Silver, Sterling Silver with a gold wash (worn), or solid 10K gold. Only one of the four I am selling is not a Naval Aviator piece....the other three are. Actually...all three of these finely detailed naval ones came from the same estate.The one that is not is an Air Force set, I believe... is also the heaviest of the four...weighing in at a comparatively hefty 18.6 grams. I'll be selling and describing them individually. Shipping charge for USPS Priority Mail of $7.40 will be added, combined shipping, if applicable, will be used...insurance is highly recommended. Payment by Paypal only. Also.....only US buyers please. Questions are welcome. These will all be five day sales. Good Luck!
This set of solid 10K gold US Naval Aviator wings are super tiny....only a scant 5/8". I've no idea where they were originally intended to be worn....seriously, a lapel? Anywhoo....I've left the color toning on the reverse as it was found....it weighs just 0.481 grams). The die struck detailing is nicely detailed considering their tiny size. Condition is excellent. Questions welcome! Good Luck!
