United States Army L19/O-1 Bird Dog / Vietnam Engravable Callange Coin L19/O-1 Bird Dog / Vietnam Engravable During the Vietnam War, if it needed to be observed from the air, the go-to airplane was the L-19/O-1 Bird Dog. A military version of a Cessna Model 305A, it was introduced during the Korean War as the L-19, but gained fame during the Vietnam War, when it was re-designated as the O-1, by filling the military’s need for a light observation and liaison aircraft and providing US Forces with critical reconnaissance on enemy artillery locations. Other roles for the L-19/O-1 Bird Dog included artillery spotting, frontline communications, medical evacuation, and training, often serving in supplementary and support roles alongside the UH-1 Huey. Anyone who flew the Bird Dog for the US Army, US Air Force, or US Marine Corps during the course of the Vietnam War will want to carry or display this impressive coin as a remembrance of their missions in support of freedom. Minted in the USA from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin displays the Bird Dog in incredible detail. The obverse of coin features front, side, and top profiles of the aircraft in the background, while an O-1 captured in flight occupies the foreground. The reverse, depicting a scene from the Vietnam countryside and the Vietnam War Service Ribbon, is engravable, suitable for names, duty dates, or special remembrances.
