    Default Is this SS plaque legit, or BS?

    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!

    Any ideas what kind of Eagle it is? Certainly not the garden variety
    SS Eagle...

    It's the same shape and style as the eagle on an SS gorget.

    Maybe it IS legit. That eagle certainly is rare, so it it was a fantasy piece, I think they would have used a more traditional SS Eagle.

    But the tooling on the plaque appears done by hand with letter stamps. It's crap.

    This plaque if real, would be engraved, as in itself, would a high end piece such as this is supposed to appear.

    Got to agree with Ned the quality of the engraving on the plaque is poor , look at the way the E , SS and A are almost on top of each other then a wide gap to Hitler !!!

    Iff this was an original 1939 commeroration piece for the Officers of the LAH i would expect the quality to be much better.
