they look wrong to me...they certainly are not shouting out originality. As you are aware though some were produced post WW1 for war vets .....may be worth checking with julian Tennant to confirm 100%, as he has more knowledge than i on AFC wings
all the best

I have to agree they look completely bogus. The style, tread and manufacture remind me of not altogether dissimilar patterns that were floating around a number of years ago. Pretty hard to get hold of though, which was quite surprising for a nice set of repro’s.

Regards,

Zob.

I compared the set to known originals and decided to stay well away from this set.

Thank you for your input , these were found and put up for sale from Scotland

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/AFC-Austr...p2047675.l2557

for your reference .My dad has a number of wings and they look better made than this and we had a father / son debate about there originality so i guess he was right again !!
