    Default Unmarked one piece cockade and cap eagle, brass pins, very curved eagle?

    Both supposedly good (great detail so fairly obviously period pieces?) but unmarked, what I find strange is how curved the eagle is, and it looks like it was cast that way. I wouldn't want to straighten it much to put it on. Aren't most hat eagles fairly flat and maybe wider overall than this one, which is 61mm wide with a 33mm pin spacing. Maybe this is for a particular sort of cap?

    The pins were bent over as you commonly see them on souvenirs, I carefully straightened them out to install on a cap I was going to pickup from a fellow collector. Upon inspecting the cap, it dawned on me that this eagle looks naturally very curved, and also that the pin spacing is very narrow, 1/4" narrower overall than the original holes in the cap, which had a three prong eagle, as is more commonly seen?

    Any answers would be appreciated, thx in advance.

    Simply just a makers variation. But good original items.
