These are two different Brunswick Flyer pin variants based on neckband design. One bears the classic Brunswick crown neckband and the other sports the generic twin ring neckband. Both bear the ABC sanctioning stamp on the backside of the pin in single color blue on an open ball. You can see a bit of a difference in registration between the two pins at the stylized "B" logo and the front sanctioning seal. I've always liked the Flyer because the font used in the model name has a breezy, active look...like flying, I suppose. Approximately mid-1970s, control weight and standard dimensions of 15" x 4.5".
