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.

Man, am I happy I don't collect wings. Those Air Service pilot wings would have drove me nuts!!

I can only imagine the amazing items that will be in that auction. Oh if I only had the money. It will be fun to watch the process though and I can't wait to see more pictures. I just wish I could own one thing knowing that it came from Duncan's collection.

I would think the collection will have wings, early belt plates, early cap plates and more as I know he had these attributed to him in books I have read. I would love to get at least a lot or two from the collection for myself but if I do not life goes on.

Fakes...all fakes. Nothing to see here, move along....move along! Dont bother to bid....move along!

 

I believe that our esteemed J Duncan Campbell was an expert on many things. I had the pleasure of talking with him a couple of times, and I have to say he was a real scholar and gentleman. We wing collectors lost a national treasure when he passed.
