Please be advised: Owning an Aviationtag, is owning a piece of history. During the airplane’s long life, the skin has developed some unique properties which make each tag different. Depending on the aircraft and what part it’s manufactured from, tags may show differences in material, color, thickness, and finish. For example, small scratches and flaking paint are perfectly normal, and these imperfections reflect on the long history of the aircraft. They give the tag its unique look and make it an excellent aviation collectible!
The white paint of the D-AIHR is rather dissimilar, so that the laser etching might look uneven.
When using the Aviationtag as a keychain or luggage tag, we strongly advise using the original Aviationtag cover to preserve the finish.
