Too good to be true?

WW2 jump wing...couple of campaign stars...invasion arrowhead...a drill...and some wet carpet (or dirt or...) and VIOLA...a nice pair of desireable wings! I personally wouldn't touch them unless they had provenance, but that's just me. Others might feel 100% comfortable with them, but I can't imagine they'd be too hard to churn out by an imaginative crook in his garage...

 

My two cents...

Only a weak society needs government protection or intervention before it pursues its resolve to preserve the truth. Truth needs neither handcuffs nor a badge for its vindication. -Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy

Peace is not the absence of war, but the defense of hard-won freedom. -Anton LaGuardia

Or maybe the fact that the original thread was posted six months ago? ;)

Have you ever noticed that people who are brutally honest seem to take more pleasure from the brutality than from the honesty?
