    Hi!

    I am new to the forum and collecting militaria.

    When I was a young teenager I found a “1 Reichspfennig, deutsches Reich, 1942” coin by chance looking thru my dads coin collection that consisted of mostly uninteresting(at least to me) coins. I remember how amazed I felt holding the coin in my hand looking at the eagle and the swastika below it, history had never felt so real and close to me before.
    Since stumbling on to this forum I have felt that I want to get my hands on something of my own from that same period and that’s when I came across the reichsbahn eagles.

    Two different Reichsbahn Eagles, authenticity, price and advice, thank you!

    I have come across two eagles from different sources and would greatly appreciate help determining the authenticity and what you would consider a fair price in today´s market. Since I am new to all of this it is difficult for me to judge authenticity and pricing hence the need for help. The first eagle is priced at 1600$ and second one 1495$. I want to buy one on these and would like to get the best value for my money. If anybody know of another eagle for sale please let me know

    The first eagle:

    There is one on the Ratisbon auction taking place currently. There are also past threads here covering these if you research the category

    First off Welcome the Forum!

    Here is a great thread. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/deutsc...hsbahn-eagles/
    WIM SARIS Book on the matter is an amazing reference reference as well worth buying.

    Thank you Rossi! The link goes straight to the subforum, not what you had in mind i guess ?
    Yes! I have been looking to find a European retailer of that book, I have seen it referenced in so many threads

    real steel, the third eagle from the top(WWII German PS LOK Railroad Eagle) looks very similar to the second one in my original post, except for the missing middle lug and size difference 600 mm vs 680 mm, thank you for the tip!

    You might send the pics to Ken at "germanwarhelmet.com". I am sure he can verify authenticity for you. The more opinions, the better. His email address is on his site.
