    Default Any Idea's on Polizei Eagle.

    Gday All,
    Any idea's on this Polizei Eagle.
    The copper colour of the obverse is correct.The funny thing is it looks like a laminate.Copper to a light alloy.I have had problems getting a clear side on shot of this.The edges of the eagle are quite rough on the "alloy"side.Could this have been a component of something else.
    Added the flashed out image as it shows a makers mark.Assmann?
    It's 22mm long and 25mm from wing tip to wing tip and convex as opposed to flat.

    Any help would be great.
    It should have been a "Bat Wing" Polizei bayonet eagle which it is not.But I won't go into that just yet.Would like to ID it first.
    Thanks for your help in advance on this one.

    Is it from a dagger, sword or bayonet handle?

    I seem to remember that these were used on a handcuff pouch (but I`ve been wrong before)...Pete.

    The convex shape suggest's an edged weapon but the pins don't appear right for that application.I have no idea really what it is.
    The Polizei edged weapon eagles i've seen are oxidised alloy grey not copper.

    Hi Dave, copper eagles are often found on Police swords. The plating has just worn off.

    Good original item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That's certainly what it is.Thanks Ade.
    The close up of the eagle show's the laminated appearence I was attempting to discribe.
    Took a chance on the only bayo eagle I could find with the retired Col. Sanders look-a-like who doesn't sell chicken.At least it's an original piece.
    Again thanks for all your help with thing's Ade,I appreciate it greatly.
    All the best mate

    The term for this type of laminated construction is known as "Cupal".

    Cheers, Ade.
