Default Wings Help Please

Gents, could you give me your views on the four pairs of wings, to my eye they all appear to have some age, but they are all a little different in fabric or a slight variation of colour.
I would welcome any comment as to age and value please?
In the past a para wing is a para wing, bu clearly there are variations.

Thanks
Steve

Hard to get an opinion based on these photos. I would say 1 & 2 could be mid war to late 50s wings. #2 looks similar to ordnance issue wings. 3 & 4 are modern wings (issued from early 60s and after). I believe market value for standard ordnance wings from the 40s 50s is around 40.

Hi Steve,

I agree with the comments on your wings but I believe the first wing is a nice WW2 wing valued at 50 - 60 quid.

Good collecting

Paul
