It’s an original wing, most likely late WW2/Korea vintage.

I am bored prefixing everything I say with "I think" or "in my opinion".
Everything I say is my opinion; the only thing of which I am certain is that there is very little of which one can be certain.

Thats a nice genuine meyer.

Here is an example of what I think is a restrike Meyer being passed off as an original ww2 meyer wing.

Notice the ground down polished back. Undoubtedly done while removing the black laquer thats on the back

of all Meyer restrikes. Also it has the wrong pin.

It will be slightly smaller than the originals as well.

A real one on the red boarder to compare to the fake restrike below it..

Just a couple things to look out for.

The seller only wants $499.00 for this piece o junk.

Let the buyer beware

I have been told this is a restrike of the Meyer Glider Wing.

I would agree. The pin is wrong and although not buffed with a gringing wheel like above, there are telltale

scrapes and scratches across the back but mainly it has the wrong pin. No cam on the end of it and

I bet it opens up all the way 180 degrees ?

I'd say restrike INMHO.

Yep, a full 180, that's the real telltale. Found in a collection of good wings I purchased a number of years ago.

I see the ones like the restrike glider I posted above and the one you posted and I see them for sale for hundreds of dollars

and I shake my head and I hope no body gets burned by them.
