I don't believe the PH is a 1932 issued one......Those were engraved with the recipient's name ...I'd say pre-war made PH, than early WW2 issued.....Bodes

Correct. It's from the small 1939 Metal Arts Company contract. And agree it's an early WW2 issue.

It is probably a very early 5th AAF pair from the Pacific.
