    I agree, the reverse looks nothing like originals I have seen. That said, I wouldn't mind it on the wall of my room.

    Thank you , I'm getting these pix sent to me and it looks like a bad cast , from all the pix I've seen details are crisp even if there has been oxidation,

    I agree with the others that this is a poor reproduction. These eagles shouldn't have RZM marked on them.

    Hi Pete, I am of a similar opinion to the previous respondents. I stand to be corrected but a, I was surprised to see the "RZM" casting into the reverse but b, perhaps, just perhaps an eagle produced for an NSDAP organisation building may have been passed through the RZM inspectorate system???

    Hi Michael the guy I'm dealing with bought from Ron Maniom auctions who's suppose to be a good auction house at least in the past , he's owned for 10+ years, but the pictures I received don't look like any eagles posted on here, the quality of these are very detailed, this one is just not as crisp, it hasn't been cleaned but even the lettering on the back isn't that clear, thx

    Manion's stinks. They have offered bogus or post war stuff marked as WWII original many times over. NH
