Afrika Korps Breast Eagle
This breast eagle came in a lot which I purchased recently. I believe this is a Afrika Korps breast eagle. It appears to be in nice condition. This came from a grouping of which I am posting a couple of items. I believe the GI that brought these back may have served in Italy with the 5th Army, but I am not totally sure. Any comments welcome! cool military The gentleman who I bought this from gave me the items up front and has asked me to send him a fair offer. I just want to make sure that I do just that.
Enjoy the photos!

Nice one! Looks good to me. Was it tunic removed?
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

I believe so. It has that cut edge look.
Good original tropical eagle.

A good original example and uniform removed. Probably machine sewn in reverse at the top then flipped down and hand finished for the remainder.
its just an opinion.
Thank you all! Jerry, that makes a lot of sense when you say it. Thank you for the help!
Thank you! It was nice to find one in such nice condition.
