    looks to me as a typical modern reproduction, similar eagle like these are sold on ebay pretty often..

    But thats my hummble opinion..lets here what the others have to say

    I've had/sold a couple of these railway eagles, admittedly it does look new, but some burk may have cleaned it

    There are some very good repros about, and this one does not exhibit any honest wear. Pictures of the back, and the fixing holes may help, but it might be a tough call

    the finish, has a rough sand cast look. i dont think its been bead blasted, because the finish is so consistant.
    just my thought from what we can see.

    I know this was a couple months ago, but I just wanted to post a picture of the original eagle so you guys would know what exactly it's a reproduction of.

    The big German Eagle in the back is what's known as the "Nuremburg Eagle."
    You can get plenty of reproductions of both of these, though I'm sure not very easily in the proper sizes. :P

    I believe yours is made from resin, not metal (judging by the pictures and description), I think "H Gal Mg S1" refers to the type of resin used.
    I'm sure the black (although you didn't show a picture of it) is flat, so that it's easily mounted to a wall for display. (Whilst the original was two-sided)
    I actually know the place where I believe that was purchased (I'm unsure if I should/could link to it though), it was ~$40.

    BTW: You can tell that this reproduction isn't an exact reproduction (check out the wings), it certainly isn't a molding of the original piece, needless to say.

    The first one posted I believe, are known as Reichbahn (railway) eagles,
    specifically designed to be mounted on rail cars, that are much
    different than the ones in the photo you've shown,
    which are three dimensional.

    I too think it is a repro, but these are very impressive looking things.
