USAF 380th BOMB SQUADRON, Med. This is a rare patch from the Korean War (probably 1950/1951), featuring a FLYING TIGER on a projectile Missle/Bomb/Probe?? It was removed from clothing, so has loose/rough thread edging. The colors are strong and clean. Size is almost 5 either way.
So, if you need one, this is it! The ULTRA-Rare Painted Metal PIN (about 1-1/4 length) mostly matches the patch. I could not find the unusual maker of this pin666 nor where Made in H.
That is a major mystery, but it came with all of these old patches. He arrived in Korea for the LAST DAY of fighting in that war, and was also in the Vietnam War.
