Very rare Japanese Navy Mitsubishi A6M5 Mod 52 Zero aluminum fragment relic display.
The attached piece of duraluminum was souvenired at Aslito Airfield, Saipan by a US Marine in 1944, and is from an A6M5 Mod 52 Zero that likely served with the 261st Kokutai (Naval Air Group). Based upon its original paint, it appears to have been from this aircraft’s cowling - blue/black over green over iron oxide primer on both sides, typical of mid-to-late-war Mitsubishi Zero production.
Displays measure 17 x 11 inches. Limited to 30. Signed and numbered.
