You are offerding on a rare Quiet Birdman wings that hung on the wall of this fraternal organization called "Quiet Birdman"
You will not see another like it, they just do not come up for sale!!This one is from the Atlanta chapter and was part of the estate of the chapters president. Mr. Forrest Shelton, who is now in the Aviation Hall of Fame!Question: Who and what are the Quiet Birdmen? Charles Lindbergh was a QB, however he was not a founder of the organization, as is often stated. The Quiet Birdmen was founded by seven World War I pilots who, beginning in 1919, regularly met at Marta's Restaurant in Manhattan to share war stories.
In the spring of 1920 the group, which had grown considerably, rented the roof garden restaurant on top of a Manhattan hotel populated principally by elderly residents. They kept the roof for the entire weekend during which they partied quite heartily. They created quite a ruckus on the roof and while going up and down the stairwells and the elevator. Due to the noise, the elderly residents dubbed the group "The Quiet Birdmen". The name stuck and "Ye Anciente and Secret order of Quiet Birdmen" was officially founded in January of 1921. 100% positive response!Please call me with any questions prior to offerding,Gary @ 404-918-4026U.S buyers only
