ARTIFACT: This is a beautiful 1960's belt buckle for the Flying Tiger Line, which began in 1945 as the first commercial air cargo company in the US and was later a military charter outfit until 1989. The center displays a 3rd issue wing logo design, a wheel with a capital T at the center, and is beautifully enameled in red and blue. The "T" at center consists of an arrow and two small triangles, all surrounded by a circular border similar to a camera shutter.
