Well, the newest addition to my collection of a pair of "Juarez" Observer Wings in Coin Silver arrived today. It has a solid flat back and marked "coin silver". This is a type I did not have in my collection. Here is an updated photo of the Observer types in my collection and a recent photo of the entire collection to date. Cheers and happy trails fellow wing lovers!IMG_2197.JPG.77c2325b2219740ed7542305842dc992.JPG

Outstanding collection!  I just picked up the glider version that was the pilot with the applied G.  I saw the Navigator in a shop near me that is the replica ( and I informed the seller) but someone bought it.  I wish I had thought of taking pictures for the forum.

Remember, it is "he who shall not be named" on this forum!

Best nickname I ever coined.

 

"Posted April 8, 2015

JoeW, MrMac, or "He who shall not be named" (AKA Lord Joedermort) bought the trademark for Luxenberg some time ago. IIRC it was his gloating of that fact that got him one of his numerous "time outs" from the forum. Eventually he (and at least one of this aliases) were banned forever. I tip my hat to him, that he not only got himself banned, but that they won't even let his name be written. That is some special kind of dedication (and serious moderator annoyance)! Even at my worst, I could only drum up a sternly worded email warning (and a 1 point demerit) for my misbehavior on the forum."

Yep. Love that his name get's blocked. Too good. Don't forget how he takes all our research from the forum, scrapes it into a cheap piece of pulp, and claims he wrote a copyright book.

Mounthood,

    Here is an example of the sterling marked Observer that I have.  The "g" in sterling is upside down.

Thought I would add a wing to this informative thread.

Here is one I've had for a number of years, a Pilot wing period modified by a jeweler (or maybe special order) with an applied E.

This is the only Engineer Juarez wing I've seen.

Sterling mark shows variation with upside down G.

This is one of the wings featured in the ASMIC Flight Engineer Wing article in the Trading Post a few years ago.

Here is a Sterling marked Aerial Gunner I just received.  The closing latch is still on the clasp and the "g" in Sterling is not inverted.
