    Well that changes things. It certainly appears to be more metallic this way but it still appears to be a reproduction in my eyes... could be wrong though.

    Thanks for posting. I'm no expert but believe Alan is. The casting does seem a bit "rough". Hard to tell. One post appears to have saw marks (good), but others are clean. IMO, should have threaded posts, or (crude) saw marks on all to show GI removal in the field.

    Then again, mine has unfinished posts that are not even cut.

    I have seen in the past, what I thought to be a real one. It had screw posts on the backside, or rather remnants of the screw posts. seems it was rusty, if memory serves, which makes me think it was of iron or some such, other than aluminum. or perhaps, just the post remnants were rusty. It has been quite a while... I agree with all on railroad car eagles,...this does not look real
