    Hi all,

    I am a keen ww2 warbird part collector (ebay or course!) - I have noticed that a lot of my USAAF parts have a yellow dot and the letters AN stenciled onto the part - can anyone give me the reason for this ??

    Cheers

    Don't know what the yellow dot stands for (you have a photo?) but "AN" stands for "Army-Navy" and was the typical prefix attached to standard parts built during WW2 and later years.
