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 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.
