Hello and welcome to the forum!
It would be helpful to know the wing span.
I believe this is a copy but hopefully I am wrong.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
I meant to include that information, the wing span is 24 inches
Member "Big Ned" would be the one to ask-he's the Eagle guy to go to.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
This is a fairly common APAG 24" fake that is also found in the larger 35" format. Here's an old link from WAF that shows another.

These are still worth $350-$450 at least as a repro, a lot of guys can't afford the asking price of genuine ones that have gone through the roof the last few years.

I appreciate the feedback all. A little disappointed that it is a repro, but happy to finally know.
Like Ned said though, it's still worth something... only not as much as an original, still a cool heirloom and representative in lieu of the real deal
