Large (28.5") authentic German Railway Eagle
Description: For sale is an authentic World War II German railway (Bundesbahn) eagle. This example is one of the large ones, measuring 28.5 inches from wing tip to wing tip. It is a little over 15.5 inches tall. The Eagle is in pristine condition with the exception of the lower stud having broken off during the removal of the plaque from the train. My late uncle first showed it to me in 1971. It was given to him by one of his army buddies, who brought it back from Germany at the end of the second World War. The patina on the eagle is undisturbed - no one has tried to polish or modify it in any way as far as I can tell. It truely looks like it was removed from the train yesterday. This is an exceptional looking Reichs Eagle sure to complement any serious collectors treasures.
