If you're a USAF collector this item is right up your alley. This wing is completely die struck, measures 3 5/16" x 13/16", screw back, not pin back, appears to be bronze!
The obverse of the wing features a 4 blade propeller over a roundel and in between the blades of the prop are the following words (in relief): 337th TCS Komaki (This is the name of the air base at that time). On the reverse of the wing is the following (also in relief): Komaki Airbase 1951 and 630. I believe this wing is a commemorative wing to the crew of the 337th TCS which were know as "The Blue Tail Flies" and the flew C-119's during the Korean War (or in preparation for the War). My research indicates this organization was part of the 315th Air Division. I have been unable to find additional information partly because I have not researched thoroughly.This is a beautiful wing and one you're not likely to ever come across again. If any among you knows ANYTHING definitively about this wing, please share with us.
