This wing is the same pattern as the wing above but unmarked. It's highly likely that A.E. Co made this badge as well.

It is unknown what era this wing is from. It could be a Pre-WW2 piece, WW2 era or Post-WW2. It's an incredibly unique pattern. If anyone has any documentation as to the era of this badge please email me.

This wing is unique due to the partially solid anchor surround and the notch in the feathering at the bottom of the wing. Usually there's a filler feather between the smaller feathers and the longer feathers at the bottom of the wing. This wing has a pronounced notch that I've never seen before. Interesting variant.
