    Default OK, who is the lucky son of a gun...

    This wing (very, very rare I might add) was just sold at auction for $1800+. The seller posted about 8 bogus wings and this one was in the mix. At first when I saw it, I was looking at it with great suspicion and trying to pick it apart. However, with the input of Major Morris and Cliff P., I realized that I was indeed looking at an original wing. It is easy to see something with "tainted" eyes when 99% of the sellers items are blatantly bogus...

    This example was made by Dreher & Son...and is quite beautiful in my opinion. So who got it? Don't hold back, I WILL find out!

    The pair i saw were made by Somethin "Attleboro" company. I remember lookin at em but they were too expensive for me. There is also a style with the inside of the wings coming further down on the shield towards the bottom. Are they about the same rarity?
    US aviation isnt really my thing, but still very interesting and i would love to hear any info! thanks guys

    Please see the above thread. I failed to mention that the wing in this thread is cast (thanks to Cliff P for the clarification)...the link will address the question of legitimacy with provenance.
