    This would have been a reject if it was period but agree with the above a post 45 after-thought.

    The felt backing concerns me because it looks post-war. Also, stamping on the face place; look at the numerals on the date of the award. The work is very sloppy. Last, have you touched the metal eagle and/or tried to see if it comes-off? If that eagle comes off or has an ability to be quickly removed, then I'd have my doubts on this piece. It looks to be brass, but does it feel like brass?

    Somebody else bought the plaque yesterday for $600.00 USD, so I guess it is their problem. Maybe the "lucky buyer" will read this thread.

    I ran across this item, which I personally think is BS. I have never seen an SS eagle like this, and doubt if it is SS. What do you think? It is a plaque, hangs on the wall. Thanks!
    Here it is. Compare.

    What do you think? Did the same person do both?
