Need help on Gemsco wings

Recommended Posts

I received these wings the other day? They appear to be original but I have limited knowledge of wings. The hallmarks appear correct but the back of the wings feel very smooth, too smooth. Other wings I have seen do not have metal that smooth. Are these wings original? Thanks for your time in advance.

I dont think you need to worry. they look good as gold to me. Sometimes, the metal sheets of silver were just better machined, especially later in the war and post war period and technology and automation took over. I have some wings that have backs that could be mirrors, they are so smooth.

 

Nice wings.

I am a bit late to reply here but those are two very nice examples! The AC apprears to be the type with the Great Seal attached vs. part of the die.

 

Thanks for posting!
