  1. These are two engraved LOM in my collection. Awarded to William D. Hamlin and Cornelius J. Rinker //Kristoffer
  2. Thanks to the both of of you. I am glad it is a good wing. Would it be easy to find Amcraft clutches to it? If I get it I would eventually want to replace them. Thanks Kristoffer
  3. If this wing should get the thumbs up from the forum what about the clutches? Would they be correct for an Amcraft wing? I have searched around a bit and the ones I found looks different. /Kristoffer
  4. What do you guys say about this TO wing? I can't seem to find any maker mark on it altough the seller says it made by Amcraft. I like the patina on it. Regards Kristoffer
  5. Thanks for the help. Now I've learned something new. /Kristoffer

  10. That is very interesting indeed. I hope you will find out more. Someone in that town has to know.
  11. That's a very nice medal. Interesting with all the information. I hope you will be able to find a photo of him someday.
  12. Outstanding collection! So much quality and it´s displayed better then at some museums. Please keep posting photos. I would appreciate some more photos of all your display cabinets. How long have you been collecting? Regards Kristoffer
  13. Hi Kurt, Thanks a lot for the explanation. It's really appreciated and I have learned something new. I will try and return the medal. //Kristoffer
  14. Hi, That's really bad news for me. I really thought it was privately done by the family after the war. Would never have thought it was machine engraved. I have never thought it was official engraving just something that was done by a local jeweler after the war. Dave, perhaps if I had ordered your book a little sooner I would have known better. Could any of you tell me how you can see it's machine engraved? I have trouble seeing it. Regards Kristoffer
