    tomromsen: Welcome to the Forum! I'm no expert on these eagles but from the pictures provided I do not see any problems. What is the asking price?

    Thank you, could get it in way of exchange about 900 Euros.

    900 Euros($1,200) isn't a bad price. I usually see them between $1,200-$2,000. Hold on and hopefully you'll get a few more replies.

    Hi tomronsen,

    I don't like this eagle very much at all. The lack of detailing on the rear of this one compared to genuine J&Z eagles, plus the fact that the mounting studs are in the wrong place as per originals would give me cause to pass and save $1200 until I see a one looker.

    Here's two different real J&Z examples for comparison.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned: I think maybe I'll get my coat now. I am curious about that bottom post. If these fakes are cast from an original why is that stud in a different spot? Also, do you know if makers ever changed their stud patterns? I dug through what little info I have on these and what I have doesn't show that bottom post! I did find that these were made in 24", 28", and 35". I think this one is around 27"?
    Thanks.

    four different sizes for this maker, stud placement will vary.

    Ned: Looking at the two examples that you posted I clearly see that J&Z eagles have more detail on the reverse than other makers.
    Thanks!

    Here are the reverse sides of my three eagles. I'm blown away by the detail that the J&Z eagles have over other makers. Ned, thank you for showing those two examples.
