Scarce 1980's Flying Tigers Line 5th Issue Flight Attendant Wing, Private Purchase Variation.
The center shows the company's logo, a nicely detailed tiger's head against a background of black enamel and is centered between stylized wings.
I am told by a retired Flying Tigers Line Flight Attendant that these wings were of a type that the Flight Attendants purchased in Korea to wear on their service aprons, keeping their Issue Wing on their dress Jacket.
The airline was started in Los Angeles, California by ten former American Volunteer Group (AVG Flying Tigers) members in 1947, and it operated until 1989, when it was purchased and absorbed by FedEx.
Approximately 2-1/2" in length x 1/2" in height.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Gilt brass, enamel.
Double posts with clutchbacks.
This is from a Flying Tigers Line collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MFEX16 LAGEX7/16
9- (Excellent+): The flight attendant wing shows minor to moderate wear, much of the gilt and enameled details remain intact, overall excellent condition.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
