Thanks harryamb2. That's my gut feeling on this as well. Someone stuck a broken broom handle in there with a couple screws trying to legitimize it.
If someone else knows otherwise please comment. Thanks!
Tend to agree with you guys on this. Craftsmanship seems a bit lacking on this one and details on eagle seem poorly depicted. See what others feel as well.

Thanks for your input Rossi. I appreciate it.
I will be the last to add, no doubt it is a cast 4th Reich bird.
Courage is not the lack of fear, it is the ability to take action, no matter the cost.
