This is a standard issue pilot wing but the shield has been polished to a smooth surface. I have seen a few wings like this but I have no idea what they signify. If anyone has any insight please email me at bschwartz@ww2wings.com.

This wing was worn by B-26 pilots. The plane was extremely difficult to fly and had very small wings for its size. This led the pilots to come up with this unofficial design.
