    Default Aluminium German Eagle at auction, opinions needed please.

    Hello guys, I am attending a local military auction this upcoming saturday, there are a mixture of real and fake items and this Eagle is one the items that I am unsure of. This is the only picture that I have. My concern is that it has been mounted therefore the reverse cannot be seen to help determine originality and in addition the detail looks to be lacking on the reef although the swastika looks to be ergonomic. I know that it is very hard to tell from this one picture but are there any red flags?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Glen - As you stated very hard to tell from this one and only picture - From the picture the feathering on the chest dosent look right/not enough detail - but as they say "A picture is worth a thousand words". Lots of Luck-

    Tread careful.

    Pay no more than the cost of a fake.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have my eagle that I can use as a comparison. I will take a good look at it on the day and like you said Ade only buy it at a cost of a reproduction like I did with the 15" eagle that turned out to be genuine.
    Thanks, Glen.

    The other big item at the auction is a Luftwaffe Flak visor that I am unsure of?

    I agree with Horst, the detail looks to be lacking. Unless it's cheap I wouldn't risk it.

    Avoid it, in the 70's, it was made by factories in the Metz area, in foundries. Since this time, I never touch this kind of item

    I agree with the lack of detail but I wouldn't even consider it unless I could see the back. Good luck!

    Hello guys, I attended the auction today and I wasn't impressed by it. It sold for 70 which was too much for me to risk.
    Thanks, Glen.
