    Default Army Breast Eagle

    Greetings all,

    I have just received this breast eagle as a gift from a fellow collector, I've never seen one of these before but it seems to be in very good shape..

    Can anyone with more uniform experience tell me a little about this piece?

    Here are some pictures that I took in haste,

    It would appear to be a Heer breast eagle such as the one on my M36 feldbluse . Iam not positive but I do believe I have seen these eagles with the green backing used on officers tunics .
    PS. It is in amazing condition very nice gift

    I just spent the last few minutes looking at examples posted on the collectors guild of officers M36 feldbluses and IMO it is an officers breast eagle and the way it has been sewn on the backing is 100% TR period.

    A good Officers quality flatwire eagle. Used on both the Feldbluse and Waffenrock.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Didn't officers use the silver bullion style instead of the flat wire?

    Hello,
    Originaly the Hoheitsabzeichen that opened this thread was meant for the Officer Waffenrock.
    Officers were allowed to wear it also with the Feldbluse....
