I am saving my coin for when the moustache comes on the block, that thing is phenominal. What a pilot, someone is going to have a very rare centerpiece in their collection.

Known in British parlance of the period as a "handlebar moustache"...and often sported by dashing RAF types!

Regardless of price, this is pure history. If one is a collector, and has the money, this is a must try.
