Interflug is one of our favourite airlines. Not because they were great, but because we grew up on the Western side of the Berlin Wall, and know very little of the East German airline. Its enigma status means we’re always happy to see a little piece of memorabilia across our desk. This particular pin is a tie pin and it has some age to it we think. Firstly, it’s fully enamelled. Previously, we’ve had similar style pins that are just painted plastic. On the rear, it looks like the pin has been repaired with a blob of glue, but given the tarnishing of the metal around the blob, it’s very possible this is how it was made. Either way, we love this pin, and unless you buy it, It’s going into our private collection.
