chief4af, would it be possible to see a scan/photo of the back of your CNAC patch?  Thank you. Steve (VB21)

Hi VB21,

    1st picture is back, I took a couple of closeups of the front if you needed them as well for comparison.

Hello again,  After our short discussion of yesterday re, the made-for-movie patch, I scoured the internet looking for a pic. or scene in The Flying Tigers showing the patch used on some clothing such as a flight jacket and found none.  However, I found my post of 2016:  https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/272141-flying-tigers-avg-patch/&tab=comments#comment-2190382 and Vintage Productions refers to the movie God Is My Co-Pilot made in 1945.  Searching the internet turned up this photo from the movie:

Thanks again all, Dennie

There were a limited number of stamps from this design, minted. Does anyone have this in his collection?

Happy Sunday.

 

Thanks for sharing again, Steve/VB21

 

Some years back I got lucky when some Australian picker from Melbourne sold me his Disney at war section, still in mint condition. 

Since I'm far away from home, I'll try to dig it up from my laptop files, at worse asking my partner in Spain to get in an album. That is exciting

knowing others from all over the world took strong interest in WW2 fighting units whose DUIs--like the flying tigers AVG--

were designed pro bono & gratis by Disney Studios.

 

Get back soon. And, thanks to all who might want to share their AVG Flying Tigers, CNAC, CATF & 14th Airforce CBI dui or anecdotes in this site. Welcome all.

Estimado busternfo,

 

Thank you again for sharing. You hit it spot  in respect the right movie reference SuperAdmin  Bob of Vintage tried to point out some years back. 

Yes, this kind of patch, including mine, were overruns from that movie era.

 

Most of this design, that I've seen, had strips of silk embroidered in the tiger design, selling for upwards $7,000 on Ebay, some years back (also discussed in another site of this forum).

 

Jose

 

ps. see some original samples below from my recent finds.

Thanks Jose.  Your silk embroidery items are just spectacular.  Are they made to be framed?  Or ?  And, what size are they?  Thanks again for sharing your amazing archive of this special group of airmen, ground crew, etc.

This is a large embroidered item.  It appears to be on parachute material and a seam is visible.  It is approximately 61 inches by 72 inches.  No idea about the history of the embroidered item.

Jose:

I am new here, and have really enjoyed the Tigers section. You collection is remarkable. I have what look like two pins, but are in fact, a pair of earrings (the screw on kind). They seem to be authentic, but I can’t find any mention of W&H having made earrings. They have the same markings as the pins, except I see “MPA PIN” stamped on them as well (I edited the color on the last pic so you could better see that marking). I believe your expertise could be of assistance here. Do you know anything about these?

Hello Jose,

 

Hope you don't mind my posting this in your thread.  Recent acquisition of mine of some CNAC insignia.

You’re so very welcome to share similar subjects in my threads, all for the enjoyment of fellow collectors like you and me. I shall be able to comment on all the other good recent postings when I’m headed back to Spain from Asia by mid December. Finally some rest.

Thank you Jose.  Here are some of my other CNAC items.  I have posted some of these in other threads but thought I'd post them here in hopes this thread may at sometime be "Pinned" for reference.
