    Question Need Help Identifying This Eagle: SA/NSDAP? Authentic?

    Hi, everyone. Can anyone help me in identifying this eagle and what exactly it is? It looks a lot like an SA eagle and it's made out of a heavy metal or iron with a wingspan of about 9 inches. There don't seem to be any markings on the back. It came out of a large collection, with some of the pieces being authentic and some not. Any help would be great!

    Thanks,
    Adam

    These have been discussed a few times within the forum.

    They are thought of as being cast repro 'desk ornaments'
    (with stand) or 'door knockers'........!

    Thanks, guys. Good to know...I'll look that up, Steve. Yeah...I hadn't seen anything like this before and I'm not sure why, but looking at it from the back I had my doubts.

    Best,
    Adam

    Hi Adam, Steve has nailed it for you.

    Personally I would pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi' Guy,these eagles where originally produced in the early 30s to mid 30s as party wall plaques,but they were only made of bronze.Many recasts have come onto the market in what they call monkey metal.Which i think this may be!but they were period pieces I own one of the originals cheers paul

    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.
