German wall eagle ??
what are your thoughts on this wall eagle
it measures 15x10 inches
It is marked (L)
these items are way out of my league
I would like to put it up for sale but want to make sure its original
it was a flea market find
what is the value ?
I could only find railroad eagles to compare
thank you for your time and help

Looks like a pretty rough trolley/bus eagle. I kind of like it but freely admit that there's not much info on these or their makers out there... so, I give it a thumbs up with some reservation. A couple of hundred, if genuine, perhaps? These are at least substantially cheaper than the bigger and higher quality railroad eagles and this one's certainly seen some abuse...
a dirty bird but I like it.
Details look good enough to me for it to be a pre-1945 bird. Does have character. Somebody wrote silver on the back and almost looks like 100 above that.
Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.
I think the scrawl reads '800 Silber' - which
of course it is not.........
thank you all for your help and info
I really appreciate it
I don't really like it.
I know that Soldiers sawed off train eagles leaving a column. This looks like it was bolted somewhere. I don't collect wall eagles, so you may want more people to ask.
