Personally I'd be looking for crew or ground support staff authentication.

The pin itself seems a legit example but nothing found on the individual or the notion of flown tie pins.

It's tricky to judge this kind of item, although you have to say that any purchase would be an act of faith in the absence of any supporting evidence that it was actually flown.
What strikes me as a little odd is that the card seems to be styled as if it was one of a number of such flown pins yet this is the first such example I've seen.
If the card or letter accompanying it was more obviously referring to the item as a one-off it would seem more normal.
