    I would say post war too due to the clutch pin fasteners and the type of finish.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The maker is 'Bell Trading Post' - It is indeed a modern/recent wing.........

    According to my very good friend John V, who has forgotten more about wings, than I will ever know:
    "Post WWII pre-1961, really post Korean War Era, as it doesn’t have the Institute of Heraldry Marks, which is a Letter and a one or two number designation.
    The G.I. stands for Government Inspected, the “Sign Post”, is attributed to “Bell Trading Company."

    Thanks, John.
