This is the very first Flying Tigers metal pilot wing badge, and dates from the late 1940's (probably 1947), hence the most valuable of all FTL wings. The Balfour hallmark is also from that early period with identical markings showing up on badges from the WWII era. I don't know the current value. It would be even nicer if he had the matching cap badge. To me, the pair would be worth at least $500.
