PlaneTags are made from actual retired
aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made
from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the color, thickness, and wear
and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it
is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags.
