Minor queeps. They take a few liberties and it ends up being "inspired" by real events:

  • They show a lot of images of overseas aviators. Rickenbacker! Dallas-type wings, and all sterling wings are predominately a stateside phenomenon (I could forgive if they at least mentioned that)
  • The video completely ignores Thomas Seastrunk's US Patent 1,340,465 which was the prior art that invalidated Semans' and Heiligman's US Patent 1,282,471
  • Eisenstadt did make a Dallas type wing, their badge marked; "EAGLE" but there is no proof they made the wing attributed to them in the video (I'll retract that statement if someone can show me any proof)

Slick production. Sloppy research.

 

All in all I like it!

Mike,

 

I appreciate your comments.

 

 

Chris,

 

Your comments were valid quips rather than nitpicking. Ideally they were meant to help the readers of the forum understand and appreciate how constructive they were intended to be. . . and I fully agree. Still, while I know Robert Pandis who produced the books, I don't know who produced the video but after viewing it, strongly suspect their objective was not to pass themselves off as being specialists on the subject of Bailey, Banks & Biddle Dallas-style wings. On the contrary, my impression is the video was only suppose to be a brief primer on the subject of collecting military wing badges. In that regard, I think they were very successful and hope they will make a few more.

 

Cliff ;)

Cliff,

 

Thank you for your kind words! I wish we would see more of you here--you have been far too scarce lately!

 

A wise man once said; "Never drink and post." After a long and frustrating COVID-19 complicated day at work, I sat down and relaxed a bit; perhaps just before bed; a bit too much... Upon reflection, the post above perhaps, is not my finest moment here on the forum.

 

I definitely meant that last part though; "All in all I like it!"

 

Chris
