ARTIFACT: This is an extremely Rare early war Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) War Training Service Instructor wing in mint condition. 


This is the Write Flyer Type II Wing (in SILVER color, as opposed to the GOLD color of the Type I Wing)  worn for a short while in the early WWII period, ca Mid - 1942, and followed by the, also short-lived, Wright Flyer Type III Wing from late 1942, which was quickly replaced with the much more common Type IV Indian Head design that was used the rest of the WWII period. 

This wing is extremely hard to find.

VINTAGE: Circa Early WWII, Mid - 1942.

SIZE: Approximately 11/16" in height x 3" in length.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Lacquered Sterling Silver.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal pin with come-under locking catch.

MARKINGS: PAT. PEND. 

STERLING

ITEM NOTES: This is from a CAA collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MDEJX17 LAEGEX3/17 SAEGEX3/17

CONDITION: 10- (Near Mint): Nearly 100% of the lacquer is intact and there is hardly any wear at all from the short time it was in use.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
