    Sorry but they both look wrong to me. I have never seen anything remotely like the larger one. The smaller eagle lacks detail and is poorly constructed in my opinion.

    The large eagle is from the early NSKK crash helmet. The other is a political cap eagle.

    Both look OK to me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thats interesting Ade. I'll definately have to read up on these for future reference. I suppose that is the function of this site.

    Congrats pasarana on a unique looking eagle.
