I’ve wanted to restart this topic for some time now and am finally getting the higher priority (non-hobby) items out of the way so I can sit down and devote some thoughts to it again. I see a similar type discussion going on currently surrounding the Bell style wings, so hopefully we can have a similar discussion here.
I do hope we can actually discuss the potential manufacturer's here, as I think we could possibly ID the maker if we really put our collective heads together in the best interests of the forum and collecting in general. I also understand that without company archives or contract information from government establishments like The Institute of Heraldry (TioH), we may never know the real facts on approved designs or hallmarking, when used. I do think we can certainly apply some thoughts to the issue until something more concrete comes to light. Thank you.
