730. 1930’s Silver USN Airship half wing by Whitehead & Hoag in pin back
Silver USN Airship half wing by Whitehead & Hoag in pin back. Precisely why this 1/2 wing is silver, I cannot say although I have heard that silver half wings were used by enlisted crew members on their Class A uniforms. I have not, however, been able to verify this. Nonetheless, this is a beautifully die struck wing in pin back with the appropriate “J” style catch used in that era. It is hallmarked by Whitehead & Hoag. This is an exquisitely fletched wing pattern.
