That maker mark sure is crisp.  I'll be interested to hear what the wingmen say.

a tad better photo of the hallmark would help, but it looks ok to me from what I can see.

Patrick - This is the wing i discussed with you and Bob several days ago.  You pointed out a couple of the die flaws including that small blob over the N in SYDNEY and those fine ridges on the right side of the wing.  You encouraged me to buy it before you did  :D  Bob thought it was good as well.

 

I have looked at the lettering pretty closely with a lens now that i have it in hand.  The top loop of the S in SIL is slightly larger than the bottom loop and the L is a bit lower than the S and the I. I've noticed both of these traits on wings that were considered good.  Also the A in ANGUS is not clean and has some "blobs"

Yep, I think its fine.  I didn't recognize it from our previous discussion.  That is because my head is like a sieve and is full of useless knowledge that keeps displacing important things.

Much better photos, thanks.   Not so crips up close.  AND I learned something new.  Thanks for posting, it's a beauty!

Perfect, quite rare, beautiful, unique and most excellent Angus & Coote navigator wing. By the way, don't just look over the N , look in between the D and the N. Very nice spot on the positioning of the L as well Jeff. Just an awesome wing. This is one of my favorite Angus & Coote wing versions. Extremely well done.
