    Hi Chrisl,

    This appears to me to be a repro 35" APAG Deutsche Reichsbahn Eagle that is fairly common having been around since the 70's at least. Saying that, it's not the worst copy out there. It's the reverse side with the flat or "cut down" lugs and drilled out fitting holes that are the biggest giveaway.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for the input Ned that's a shame, it's quite cheap so may still be interested, not sure really. I am quite new to collecting and unfortunately finding more fake items than genuine
