    The early party style eagle in the photo is nickel-plated iron, and is designed to sit upright by means of an iron stand (missing on this example) The eagle is the style of the one from the masthead of the party newspaper Voelkischer Beobachter. The eagles were cast in brass or bronze before the war, and because of wartime copper use restrictions, iron after the war started. Those with the stands were displayed in the windows of shops where the VB was sold, and those without (some were cast with a solid, flat back) were used as paperweights on the stacks of VB sold in outdoor newspaper kisosks.
    Wow, a real answer. I knew these were manufactured and some real but was unaware of how they were applied.

    Best,
