More views over the weekend, but as not much is being added for discussion, I would like to conitnue at this point.
My original intentions were to move on and discuss the later produced wings that TC shown (with Coro’s 12C hallmark) and save the AG wings for last. However, after Russ posted that terrific AG wing on the previous page which I think many have not seen, pattern wise, it may be better to go directly into the AG wing series at this point so the topic remains organized and on the pattern currently being discussed. We can move on to the newer pattern later in the thread.
On the aerial gunner sets of wings; I would love to see a solid reverse example with the double sterling mark, if they exist. Until Russ posted that wing, I was beginning to think they did not exist and the only examples out there may be these two-piece wings without the target, as they look similar in details on the front. Now, I am not so sure exactly what to think. Are the two-piece wings from the same manufacturer, or someone else, or is it a case of experimenting on design to see what was the most economical to produce?
Anyway, I am hoping to see someone else post a solid AG wing similar to the example Russ posted. I don’t think many of that pattern exist, or we would see more showing up periodically. I have asked if other collectors had seen a solid version but nothing ever came of the requests, so I honestly began to feel they did not exist and now, they most certainly must have.
Here’s that wing Russ posted back in posts 33/34 again. Note the similar die patterns.
