    Default Breast Eagle

    I dont know if this is a breast or cap Eagle ?

    Die struck aluminum, marked "1 GES. GESCH." on the reverse in raised text. All 3 prongs are intact
    Ges.Gesch is short for " "Gesetzlich Geschützt" " which translates "legally protected"...as in the design is protected by law, or "patent pending".
    Makers mark: 1 GES.GESCH
    Could it be Wehrmacht summer metal tunic breast eagle (cyrillic), or do anyone have more info

    Regards

    This emblem was worn on the caps of WWI veterans during WWII.
