I was able to make a deal for this wing on eBay.  I've never seen one like this before.

Can anyone teach me more about it?

 

Help,

Owen

Interesting I was going to say possibly sweetheart, but the catch is made too well for that

Plus, it's pretty large for a sweetheart piece.

That's something I'm wondering about.  If it was an official wing that would be the case.

A jeweler made wing kinda throws the rules out.  I also wonder if it is cast.....
