Airplane history search by W.Nr.

A pair of data plates from a U.S. veteran's estate have turned up. I'm hoping to learn something about the planes' history.

Me109 W.Nr. 465417

Junkers W34 W.Nr. 590

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Steve

Hi Stephen - The Junkers W34 W/Nr.590 is from a Henschel built batch. Any chance of seeing a Scan. Thanks & Regards
