    Shown is an antique Native American made whirleygig, made in 1922 by Dan Eagle, a member of the Menomonee tribe of northeastern Wisconsin. This was purchased at a flea market in Illonois. The dealer was able to tell me what he knew about the item. Upon closer inspection I found the very faint initials DE and 1922 scratched into the piece. The next time I saw the dealer I told him about my discovery. He never noticed this and said "Had I know that was on there I could have gotten a better price". I have no idea why I cannot get the pictures right side up. I no matter how I rotate them they still come up upside down. This happens every now and then. Any suggestions on how I can fix this? Thanks.
