  1. Just about everything has been faked... 🙄
  2. No, they look fine to me.. A bit pricey though
  3. Looks CBI made to me. I have theater made examples with that same hinge pin assembly.
  4. BTY - the blue backgrounds are always "iffy" I was just pointing out that if you see one on say, a 7th Ike its probably bad - I was just answering why the tan..
  5. The tan was usually sewn to the tan summer uniforms. Looks better against the blue than a gabardine one. BTY the "combat blue " back is most commonly found on 9th AAF and some 8th.
  6. So, about 10+ years ago there where a couple of sellers on eBay ( probably the same person) who would come out with all these exotics that were always engraved check this tread : http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/21830-examples-of-fake-fantasy-reproduction-wings/ Here is and example from that thread: As you can see, same engraving style on the big letters - it's junk
  7. They look fine to me, and I have always considered these to be late war to Korea as there is no 9M or 22M shield. Others will disagree I'm sure
  8. I have always considered these to be post war - I believe these are on the LGB dies
  9. I agree, nice variation!
  10. This is one of "he who can't be named" wings that someone took and had a name in engraved: http://1903.us/WWI/Bombardier/WWI-US-Air-Service-Bombardier-Wings-Sterling-p137.html
  11. Fantasy piece - looks like the style of engraving that was being used by a couple of bad sellers a few years ago -
  12. I would love to see what kind of offers they are getting...
