Question: flying tiger catv patch

Recommended Posts

I cannot use image search with the new forum nor find old content with searches. 

Was this a post war insignia? I know there is an old thread on this but I just spent 22 minutes searching and cannot find it. 

Thanks in advance. 

patch is large, does not glow.

Great information. Movie was made in 1945 so the patch is war time made , so we know it has value as a movie prop so to speak but might it also have value as military insignia since it is war time, etc. Maybe too philosophical a question.

I’m sure Bob has sold a few. I put a BIN price of $450. Not sure if high or low. Still wartime....but not worn by AVG.

In its Annual Pictorial, the Flying Tigers of the 14th Air Force Association refers to this design as a "try out patch" for the 23rd Fighter Group shortly thereafter replaced by the Disney design.

Was this made as a prop for the movie? Or giveaways to promote it?

I thought I read in a post that all Wartime ATV patches were made of leather only? Is it true? Dave
