  1. They're good. Nice addition to your collection.
  2. This guy has a batch of fake ANGUS & COOTE WINGS for sale on eBay. Probably no one here is bidding, but just an FYI... https://www.ebay.com/sch/bob5gws/m.html?item=284036505363&hash=item4221e51f13%3Ag%3AHB4AAOSwgMpffHmi&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  3. Thanks Allan. Appreciate it. Jeff
  4. Is this background oval WWII period? Wings are shown just for size reference. Thanks
  5. Just thought I would share my first K.G. Luke wing that I recently acquired. Definitely has some character and fills one of the many holes in my wing collection. Shout out to Mel, Patrick, John and Bob for putting up with all of my questions and giving me the thumbs up before purchasing it.
  6. Yea, I like the Meyer wings too. There is a lot of variation in the hallmark to look out for as well. That is if you like all that minutiae like me. Nice pickup.
  7. If your feeling like you missed out on the "HOLY GRAIL" BB&B wings the previous times they were up for sale, you've got yourself another opportunity. https://www.ebay.com/itm/HOLY-GRAIL-WWII-BB-B-Bailey-Bank-Biddle-3-SILVER-pilots-wings/133524212604?hash=item1f16a9cb7c:g:0AoAAOSwavpfZp1N The last winner must have had second thoughts...
  8. Thanks Marty Is the make up of the Bombardier wing like the Aerial Gunner, that is, one piece construction as opposed a separate bomb being soldered to a target?
  9. I really like this pattern with the slick back as well and have the pilot, aircrew and navigator wings. What other ratings were made in this patten?
  10. So Patrick, how did you come into possession of this set of "bucket list" wings?
  11. BOND is a rare hallmark. I've only seen it on Pilot wings, but the pros on here will let us know if there are other ratings to be had. Seems reasonable that someone would try to fake them, but I have not heard of fake BOND hallmarks. I put my bid in at the last second, but i was several dollars short😕
  12. I think so. I have one just like yours and i can see what appears to be brass showing in some of the raised areas where the silver finish is worn away. Nice wings.
  13. This one is certainly fine and if the wing that you found has the same style of pin with the cam stop that only allows the pin to open to 80-90 degrees it sounds like it is fine as well. Only way to find out for sure is to post a photo of it.
  14. Hi - I picked these up at a flea market a few years back and don't know if they are real or not. And if they are real what time period are they likely from? Please let me know if more photos are needed. Thanks, Jeff
  15. Thanks John. Have always been leery of this seller. Many of his wings seem questionable and terrible pictures to boot.
