    Hi Andrew, I've had a few other 'first type' cap eagles in the past; none were marked. Regards, Hal

    There's more Unmarked police-eagles than marked one, at least Iam talking about my knowledge. Some of those egales above were also used for Firefighters. Here's some of mine.None of them are maker marked:CupAL, Alu, zink

    Hi Hal,
    thanks for the responce. i was interested if any one knew how many different companies made them. and i'm interested in the variations. i'll add mine because its slightly different from the other ones.
    mine has great fine detail. my camera is not the best. but i think its clear enough. mine is closer in style to the first set, pic on the left, eagles features are similar. but mine has what looks to be rivit mounts on the back behind the wing.
    i just think its interesting to show variations of original items.

    glad i could add something different to consider.
    it just amazes me, with all the slight variations in things.

    I don't think there were a lot of variations on the first pattern, but to say how many companies made those items is impossible, also for a lot of other militaria.
    Your's is a two construction piece.

    I was going to say the same as Hal. I have never seen a two piece construction like Andrew's. I'm no expert, but if Andrews is a police piece, it must be very early. Great stuff guys!
