Default Royal Canadian Air Force Aircrew Wings - Information Required Please

Picked up a selection of Royal Canadian Air Force ribbons and patches as shown in the attached photographs.

1) A selection of SEVEN CANADA titles (three matched pairs and a single of various slightly different styles)
2) Two Ribbon bars (one is CVSM with Oakleaf, British War Medal and Canadian Decoration, the second is CVSM, British War Medal and CD with rosette which I assume indicates the award of a bar ?)
3) King's crown RCAF Pilot's wings with non interlocking RCAF (padded construction)
4) King's crown RCAF Navigator's wings (padded construction).

The badges are , without question 100% genuine. The questions I have relate to the two wings. I assume that they are post WW2 pattern but pre 1953 ?? I have been unable to find images of any other genuine examples so am also wondering about their scarcity.

Please be aware that I will be offering these badges for sale once I have further information.

Many thanks in advance for an additional information.

Hello Paul. Your assumption is correct. The pilot's and navigator's qualifications are post war through the change to the St Edward's crown. They fall in the scarce range.

They were made from 1947-53, specifically.
