GIANT'S ORIGINAL UNIFORM EMBLEMS
Original prop costume emblem from the popular Irwin Allen series of the 1960's,
Land of the Giants. This emblem was on the Spindrift uniforms worn by Steve Burton,
Dan Erickson, & Betty Hamilton. There were a number of these made for the TV-series.
Constructed of orange cloth with colored design. This piece comes from a collection
of scifihollywood and is guaranteed to be authentic as described. It is a prop and
like all props shows some signs of wear from production use and storage, but is in
overall fine condition.
Set of 5 original costume insignia emblems from "Land of the Giants". Orange with
black, yellow, red and purple designs. Each approx. 2" x 2". In fine condition.
These emblems were used on the Spindrift crew uniforms on the TV series. They were
removed from the original costumes after the show ended it's run on ABC. Note that
several emblems are different in color or shade. These emblems were in storage at
Western Costumes in Hollywood for many years, and was obtained by Profiles in History
and purchased on December 1, 2003.
This is the largest set of original emblems known on Land of the Giants. The value
of these emblems are based on the condition and wear of each emblem. This emblem
was also used on "The Time Tunnel" TV series on the episode "One Way to the Moon"
on the astronant's uniform. As well and on Lost in Space in the episode, "Collision of
Planets" on the Space Hippies vest.

I thought you might find it interesting to know, if you already didn't, that the
Spindrift emblem used on The Land of the Giants was originally used in the Spy Film
"OUR MAN FLINT" It was the emblem worn by the evil guys, known as G.A.L.A.X.Y., that
were planning on taking over the Earth by controlling the weather.
Here is a jpg of James Coburn, as Derek Flint, wearing one of the bad guys uniform.
Next to the photo is an original emblem used in the film and the replica that can
be purchased today.
(*) Many thanks Ed for the update and photos!
