Good thanks Steve.

Unknown where it was made but it would make sense that's probably where it was manufactured.

Good collecting

Hi Luke,

I was told to look at the font of the lettering. You'll note your badges writing is larger than Billy's. Also, it looks to me like the slider has been 'shaved' to look like it is pointed....

Now at home, and not looking at the photos on my small phone, I agree with 'T' about the white tongue patches being modern reproductions.

Hi Dave,

The 101st 'white tongue' patches are a more uncommon version of the patch. I'm unsure if these are good or not but will get the books out later and get back to you.

The felt patch is a...

Hi Timmy,

That seems a bit steep for that wing. From memory this type is in the 200-250 range. Are you looking for a WW2 example?

As Donovan mentioned, I believe it's a 50-60's era wing because there's photographic evidence of it being worn in this era but not in WW2.

What is the asking price on the wing?

Certainly unusual and not similar to any para wings I have seen before. However, I do like the locally made construction and believe it to be WW2 era.

Thanks

Hi Mark,

Nice badge.

I don't own a KIS badge, but your example looks similar in construction to others I have seen.
