I hope it's ok to post this here, since I didn't think another thread was necessary. Today I got a necklace that one of our dear friends bought me. I'm so excited!! It's a WW11 US Army Air Corp. lapel wing. During the WW11 the pilots would mount their wings on a piece of Plexiglas's from the window of their planes and make a piece of jewelry out of them. Our friend found one of these and just knew he had to give it a good home, so I now have the honor of wearing these wings around my neck. It is so cool and is mounted in a heart shape with the wings in the middle. Here is a picture of those wings:

Thanks Anita, I am already enjoying.  Wink


Since my post I have all kinds of questions.  This was found in a pawn shop, so what kind of person would have pawned something like this??  If it was found among items of a deceased person, would you not pass it on??  If you found these wings among your Grandfathers belongings would you not want to give them to a family member to stay in the family forever?  I just can't imagine letting something like this go.  As Duster said that piece of History is lost, and maybe the person was a peace activist.  Oh, the questions I have.  Any thoughts on this??

Maybe the person who originally pawned it did not have any living relatives to pass it on to or needed the money real bad and pawned several other things along with it.  Or if a family member found it, they did not really understand any historical value to it
and preferred the monetary value of it.  Not sure how much it would have been worth.  Pawn shops really don't pay that much.

This true Byrdman, but what a find.  Our friend paid $5.00 for this.
