Not got a clue if it's TR era, but by the look of the bare wood on the rear there is some age to it!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Thanks, it is older as the screws are of the period, and as I said, the several pieces are well fitted.
I have said many times on this forum that I am not a WW2 German collector so I know very little about this sort of thing. I just seem to keep coming across WW2 German items, all large bits, never badges or medals.
I would guess a home made piece, and judging by the shape of the eagle, probably someone who was involved in some way with Heer.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Cannot vouch for originality, but it does look good. And would look good on display
for what its worth,i was in a friends antique shop in Vienna recently,and and was looking through some of his "new arrivals",there was an eagle that was nearly identical to this one,the only difference was that the wings were dovetailed into the body,it had lain in a cellar since 1945 ( lost a good deal of its paint)and was only discovered when someone new bought the house,after seeing that one,and looking at this one,i would say its genuine
Thank You Guys!!!, Very interesting story Flak Bunker, it looks like there is hope this may be period.
