    TC,
    In the bottom pic of the back of the three wings, The bottom unmarked one is what I have been told are the graduation wings.
    I have a similar pair and when I asked member Steve(Walkwolf), that is what I was told.
    Nice AMCRAFT's. I got a set of those also.

    You have a wonderful grouping!!
