    Legit?

    WWI U.S. ARMY AIR SERVICE BOMBARDIER WINGS (STERLING) - eBay (item 260573890092 end time Mar-29-10 20:20:05 PDT)

    We have some very knowledgeable in the field so I'm hoping we'll get their opinions on these rare wings.

    I don't like this one at all. The US's are rendered very poorly. Additionally I see clear evidence of casting bubbles on the back.
    The findings are well done however.

    I agree with Gary on this one. Casting marks are visible on the reverse of the bomb as well as the leading edge of the wings on the reverse. I don't like the catch either, I would expect better quality for a hand made piece of such limited number. As far as I am concerned, this is a definite candidate for inclusion into the Fake gallery.

    I agree with Steve and Gary! I posted the other set this Enay seller has listed as a fake in the "other" forum

    I think this seller does not know since he is posting photos that show these are cast wings.

    Steve, John-

    Thanks! Let's move this set over to the dark side (aka fake section).
