    Here we have another bogus Tiffany wing from the same auction site as the other one - good ol' ebay. The casting on this one is pathetic. I most of the same criticisms to this one as I did the above....

    Here is supposed original Tiffany wing currently at auction. After some discussion with another collector, I believe them to be fake. Here is why:

    1. Heavy oxidation is probably actually a product...

    Major,

    I'll make the arrangements for the trade for you! I found them on eBay...all by the same seller. There are even more "jewels" but I was so emotionally overcome by these "rarities" that my...

    Only three known originals... "these ain't them".

    Good grief...really???? notcool

    I am at a loss for words, please feel free to post your thoughts.

    Hi Steve,

    Only problem is...they forgot to do their homework. If they had, they would have known originals were in silver. Typical laziness of the faker.

    Here is a very bad attempt at creating a "Dallas" wing. I believe this to be in thinly stamped cheap steel as silver doesn't rust. The beading is inconsistent and the "US" is not correct either....

    Here is another example of a wing pretending to be made by Eisenstadt. This firm did indeed produce metal wings which incorporated hand chiseling in the feathers, but not of this poor quality. The...
  11. Sticky: Re: Fake WWI Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    Hi Steve,

    The seller has re-listed this at least twice, that in itself should tell you something. IF it were a real attributed example, it would fetch $10,000+ easily. Duncan Campbell had a Rock...

    Fake Military Aviator wing. The back is the death blow for me...

    Come on guys, I know for a fact that I am not the only one here who can detect fake wings...start posting!!!:rolleyes::)

    Here is an example of what I believe to be a fake "cap" or "sweetheart"...
  14. Sticky: Re: FAKE World War I Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    Steve,

    Yes, believe me, I know the seller quite well... I am finding that there are some who knowingly spend money on "reproductions" i.e. fakes, for "fillers". I will never understand that...

    Hi Steve,

    If you are talking about item #'s 330411839352 & 310204756002, they are both garbage in my opinion. I haven't had a chance to add them to the list yet... Feel free to add them with your...

    Here is another fake RMA badge. Note the fresh fugitive shiny solder blobs and poor detailing in the beading around the wing and shield. Also, note the lack of gold for the "US", gold was cheap in...

    Here is a trio of fakes that was just "won" by someone for $129.00. I am confident that the high bidder was taking a gamble on the metal Observer wing being original...I think he lost. It is crudely...
  18. Sticky: Re: FAKE World War I Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    I agree John. I think you know how I view fakes as fillers...only good filler is a dead filler.
  19. Sticky: Re: FAKE World War I Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    Here is yet another fake wing (Observer) from a well known auction site. The wing was made as a reproduction, and is being sold as a such. This one would not fool many except those with very little...
  20. Sticky: Re: FAKE World War I Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    From an on line auction. It can't decide if it wants to be American or British. The craftsmanship is awful and the reverse mesh backing is a giveaway (just in case the front wasn't enough to make you...

    Howdy John,

    Thank you. I am very grateful for your looking in and posting.cool militaria As a result of our conversation today, and because of some information I was given by another forum friend,...

    Here is another fake wing that is pretending to be a US made example on the front...the reverse uses a British style pin - there is nothing in the design of this wing that would indicate a British...
  23. Sticky: Re: FAKE World War I Allied Forces Bullion & Metal Wings

    I feel I need to make a statement at this point concerning the past few wings I posted. I feel I am bordering on violating my initial comments about not attacking anyone. I do not want to do that,...
