Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a very rare American Volunteer Group (AVG)-type Chinese pilot wing with a number (1946) in the vicinity of the Flying Tigers issuance, which is generally accepted as under the issue number of 2000. These early style issue Chinese wings were made in 3 separate pieces braised together, with the central Chinese sun in a blue and white enamel as a 4th piece held in by crimped edges. These are a delicate wing prone to breakage and to find one in this number range and in this condition is extremely difficult.

VINTAGE: Circa World War II.

SIZE: 3/4" height and 2-3/4" width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Gold-plated brass with blue and white enamel.

ATTACHMENT: Horizontal safety pin with true safety-pin type catch.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a American Volunteer Group collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. LEEJJX3/10 SCJJJX5/10

CONDITION: 7+ (Very Fine+): Wing shows some light wear and small areas of discoloration.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
