    Alex- first model eagle flag pole top used by the NSDAP - nice period piece although it looks like it did get some polishing.

    So Horst, you reckon it might be genuine.As kradman says, I would have expected the casting to be better.I never knew what to make of it, so expert opinion is very welcome. Thanks,Alex

    Alex - Yes, I like the detail in the claws and wreath, over time and rubbing some details as well as the black on the swaz has been removed - heres mine check it out you can tell that they both reflect the period,

    Horst, I can see you know your stuff.Its great having access to such well informed collectors.To be honest I have never even thought of it as genuine,so its a real bonus to find that it probably is. Thanks again, All the best , Alex

    I know I have posted this before, but one thing bothers me about it, its the lack of any hole in the bottom by which it was attached to the flagpole.Do you see this as a problem regarding authenticity? Thanks, AlexClick image for larger version.

    Alex- that hole as you call it(Round piece) is a loose section and most of the time is missing as its lost to time - on yours the screw part which goes through the round piece and then into the pole top looks like it also has been cut off but overall its a real period piece in my eyes . Who knows what was done to it by the vet and various hands through time 60+ years.

    I for one am glad to see a new member showing their appreciation, and thanking a more senior member for their time and willingness to share their knowledge. It makes such a refreshing change from "is it real and what is it worth?". Well done Alex and a belated welcome to the forum.
