On the top plate the I is centered on the A. Offset on the lower.

I can't tell by the photos but the lower doesn't look "square".

Looks like the black Ethyl letters don't quite fit the white outlines on the second pic.

I have 2.....Each of which were obtained in the mid-late 1980s. One has the top of the "A" centered under the "I" of "Flying" and the other is offset to the left.

To my knowledge, both are good. I believe I have owned both versions previously
