This is the second pattern Luxenberg wing made by Blackinton. Note that the Luxenberg name has been partially removed from the back of this badge. It was removed from a Blackinton factory sample board in the 1950s.

These wings are presumed to be originally 1938 prewar Orber die, likely purchased by Amcraft and used post-12/7/41 at whatever time Orber sold company. There are silver plated brass (see Pilot Wing page) and STERLING wings with similar overall design but differing detailed characteristics and thickness (thanks to Cliff Presley for info on dates and Companies)
