    Both are copies IMHO. Original Heer shields are fairly easy to get, but Luftwaffe & KM are much harder to find and cost a lot more money, though if you look hard enough you do sometimes see them come up for a sensible price, but they are nearly always more expensive than Heer examples.

    Attached some images showing the holes from where the original Luftwaffe eagle was removed.
