    Default Luftwaffe Flag Pole Topper?? Real or Fake?

    Hey guys I have had this for some time and have always thought it was a Luft Flag Pole Topper. It is made of aluminum and is pretty small compared to my other toppers 6 inches long and about 4 inches tall. The base where it looks like it may have gone on a pole is only 3/4 " and the only markings are on the back that say Luft 127 It looks like there are some very light traces of black paint in between the feathers on the eagle. Just looking for some info on why it is so small and if it is real or not.

    It was likely mounted on a piece of marble and used as a desk ornament.

    Thank you Bob I just did a search and found a lot of these that are fakes but I did see a few that match mine and that is exactly what it is. I think I will find a nice piece of marble and try to restore it so it can sit on my desk!

    ( Too late ! ) I think Bob is correct.

    Try a trophy shop for an appropriate piece of marble.......

    Shouldn't cost too much, and if you bring the eagle with you
    they may be able to 'custom fit' it to the marble block.

    Some similar ones from a period cataloge.

    Note the prices.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Fantastic, Ade.

    A block of marble of the correct size and shape can be realised
    from this - The one on the top left looks good.

    Please give us an update with photos if you decide
    to have it repaired.........!
    Regards,
