Ebay has become flooded with this specific maker yet they still seem to sell for hundreds of $$$

To my eye this looks like one of the recent restrikes and not a period piece. The pin isn't quite right and the detail is a little too perfect when compared to the wartime pieces. I know it sounds odd to say the restrike is "more perfect" than the original but that appears to be the case with these new A&C wings that seem to be hitting the market in force. Here's some shots of a period wing for comparison.
What about this one? I hope this is origial, Does Anybody have any comments on this one..

To my eye that one looks a lot better than the first one. I'd be comfortable having the latest one you posted (#6) in my collection. I believe it's a period piece.
