Artifacts that belonged to members of the original Flying Tigers are extremely hard to acquire and rarely come up for sale. Often collectors lucky enough to acquire anything from the AVG will hold onto the pieces for their entire lifetime and families rarely let these artifacts go if they are lucky enough to still possess them. Don't miss this chance to own a true piece of WWII Aviation History.

SIZE: Approximately 2" x 5/8" (Box measures 2 ??" x 1 ??" x 9/16")

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a collection of Flying Tigers & Chinese Aviation artifacts that we here at Flying Tiger Antiques have been commissioned to sell. We will be listing more from the collection over the coming weeks. CON-AVG-18-14 MBEJX14 LHIEX12/14 SEJJX2/15
