This Consolidated PBY Catalina plane tag is made from the actual fuselage of the PBY-5A Bu46590, and is a special edition of 5,000 units. Plane tags are great gifts for pilots, airplane enthusiasts, and also make a notable airplane collectible. These airplane tags can easily be used as luggage tags or keychains. Or, make a collection of all our Special Edition Airplane Tags for a stylish wall display.
This genuine skin plane tag is not just stamped metal as each carries the color, thickness, and actual wear and tear from the fuselage from where it was cut. Each plane tag is truly unique as variations are not product flaws, but simply different parts of the fuselage. As such, please be aware that we cannot guarantee the airplane tag color. The back of the airplane tag has space to write a name, address, and phone number.
