Help please

Found this wing for sale and wanted to check that it is for an oval.

What do you think?

Are there any differences between a us spec and european spec other than the bullet?

Si, The wing is geniune and was probably from a 57 as it has the angular headlamp bowl.I bought that wing with another on ebay some years ago .It has the rust issues around the headlamp bowl and has had the running board flare flattened .With the repairs around the bowl and some skilled work with a dolly it would make a sound wing.
