A number of years ago, I purchased a pair of bullion OSS wings frm a gentleman who was selling off a nice collection of wings. I couldn't afford any of the ones with provenance at the time, but picked up these. The reason that I like the chances on them being legit is that they are so different from the norm in wing shape and lack the dot after the 'SF'. Why put the time into something that isn't close to the norm? I would love to get peoples oppion on them.

Scott-
My opinion is fake. I don't like that red ribbed material behind the SF and I don't like the coppery colored bullion. Plus, I don't like this item being in bullion.

I am with Kurt on this. I don't like the ribbed red material behind the letters, the wings are extremely crude and they appear to be chemically aged. I am thinking Pakistani manufacture.

Thanks for the replies. I always felt inwardly that it was chemically aged and I was thinking Indian, but you're probably right on with Pakistani. I've seen plenty of BAD repos, but why be so off on something like this??

I think sometimes you have to think like a criminal.
If they did it exact ... you would probably question it more.
If it is a little off then... maybe it is a variation or maybe its ok
Smart criminals sometimes use reverse psychology on us.
