B-17F 42-30005 "Salvage Queen."

Note the dark surround around the national insignia. This dates the photograph between late September 1943, and the time "Salvage Queen" was salvaged in November 1943.

B-17F 42-30005 "Salvage Queen," 546th BS, BK*A. This photo illustrates the type AN-I-9b, insignia, which was obviously applied in the field. Note how the original Insignia Blue has faded to a much lighter shade compared to the freshly painted border.
