    Hey Vonbond(Remember me from ww2f?) I don't think it is original, i think somebody said in an earlier thread that there were 5 wing things on the originals, and yours has 4(Seen the picture):

    Hi Collectorww2, I do remember you. This is a cap eagle, which have 4 wing feathers, not a tunic eagle which have 5 wing feathers. It 100% original, IMO.
    Here are my other 2 examples, both cap eagles with 4 inner wing feathers. Also 2 heer tunic eagles, with 5 feathers.

    Thanks, Jerry

    Hi there,

    The old "five is good, four is bad" rule applies to breast eagles not hat eagles

    As to if it's okay, or not, I will leave that to others, however it looks good to me.


    Regards,

    Spence

    Hi, its all about learning, so no worries, there is so much I-or any of us- dont know and I've been reading and looking at this stuff for nearly 40 years and have been actively collecting for more than 10 years.

    Thanks for your interest in these.

    Hi, well its arrived and I want to thank the seller, it arrived quickly and is a great original item, thanks again Matt.
    Here it is-top right- with my other two examples, all 3 are manufacturers and date variations and my new cockade, which strangly is worth as much as 2 or 3 of the eagles.

    You are welcome Jerry. Yeah, the eagle is definitely 100% original. My father, who has been a collector for many years, was lucky enough to purchase almost a full roll of these tropical cap eagles at auction in the late 80s early 90s. He paid good money for it but what a find. I might put another one up in the for sale section at some point.
