I am sorry to inform you of this fact, but the Glider Pilot wing is one of the counterfeits die struck from laser precise cut dies. We have all been there, you are not alone in purchasing a counterfeit wing. These came out in a huge lump sum a few years back and flooded the market until it was brought to light, what was happening and since then they have shown up but not in the numbers they once did as it has been disseminated into the community what these perfect wings from modern manufacturing techniques are. I am on the road so I will take a look at any others when I get home.

Thanks for your answer mtnman  ^_^

No problem if it's a counterfeit, I just want to share on our FB page the true and show as a counterfeit.  
I do some reenactment and I will enjoy to put this wings on my shirt. 
A very nice made with nice patina.

Yes this will be a nice wing for reenactment for sure! And by the way, I truly respect what you do and the reenactment network of events, keeping the history alive in reliving these pivotal events in history, I commend you sir.
