    Superb. Be careful keeping the wings stored with the paper backing. That backing is acidic. The natural lignin and other acids will keep leaching out of the paper. Need to keep them in low temp area to prevent. Thanks for sharing.

    Guys, Play take another gander at these wings. I have a person that is interested in them. A biddiot on ebay He is making all kinds of claims which are thus far unsubstantiated. What do you guys think of them, good bad or indifferent. I pulled the ebay listing. Would rather sell or trade them on here if they are good to go
    Thanks in advance

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    The reverse markings on both wings are not
    in the 'typical' style of LGB from WWII, but
    they both appear to have been
    die stamped.

    The cards look authentic, and by their
    discolouration, the badges must have
    been attached to them for
    a long time.

    The wings should measure exactly
    3 inches across.........
