Navigator Wing—Reproduction?


Recommended Posts

It is VERY uncommon to find a reproduction of a 2" wing. Usually, only theater made or high quality makers like Blackinton or Luxenberg would be worth a faker going to such trouble.

 

This wing appears to be 100% original.

Never under-estimate the power of prayer.

I'll go with everyone else's comments as, good. Did you scratch test it to confirm it is sterling?

Great looking little wing. I'd have no problems with a WW2 vintage dating.

 

Please DON'T perform an idiot test and deface/devalue it, especially when there's no red flags and there's a pretty obvious stamp STATING the basemetal material! I could not even begin to estimate the number of items I've seen vandalised by idiots who can't tell gold from brass or silver from zinc - or worse, don't realise they are "testing" the finish rather than the basemetal.

 

Regards

Mike

A REAL collector would just run it under a good steel buffing wheel and some Brasso and make that underlying metal SHINE!  Thats what I always say!

 

Its fine.  Probably WWII/KW vintage.
