    Default German Railway Eagle???

    I would like to get opinions on whether or not this is a real or reproduction. I sent photos to a dealer, and was told that it is a repo but was then offered hundreds from said dealer which makes me hesitate, I feel I might be getting played. It was passed down to me. My grandfather was in WWII and said that he brought it home, not saying it couldn't be a tall tale, but I would like to believe my grandfather didn't lie to me. Any knowledgeable information would be greatly appreciated. Click image for larger version.

    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.

    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.

    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
