Question on Josten WASP Wings
Posted 07 June 2019 - 05:54 AM
I know that Josten should be stamped on all legit wings (except for discussions on Amico wings). Did Josten use just one specific mold for these wings or did it change slightly over the short period of time that they were made. Some of the good wings Ive seen posted look a little different on the front - but it could just be slight wear or quality and angle in which the photo was taken.
I am hoping to get a chance to look at some wings over the weekend and want to do my homework. I have seen some quick pics of them and like everyone else I am concerned about the nail heads - photo was not very clear and I could not judge the length of the pin. The photo was taken shooting down, so I cannot tell if there is any curve to the wings The N in Sterling did have the missing upstroke.

I have 4 Josten wings ( 2 are named ) and they are all identical. I only know of one pattern.

Wasp wings are heavily faked. From what I was able to understand, you need to be really educated about
WASP wings before you even think of putting any money down.

I think I know the obvious signs of bad wings... it’s the details that can get you in trouble. Hopefully, if things work out, I will have plenty of time to look them over and post some photos before making an offer.
Steve, thanks for your post... I have seen your wing postings and will study the photos.
