Can't speak to the color, however there are some concerns on this one. First is the error in stitching that I have circled in red in the photo below.
As to the thread Steve was referencing, I've included a link. Breast Eagles are by no means my area of expertise so it would be best to wait for someone with more knowledge in this area.
I think I do remember seeing this one at the location you got it from and passed on it for the reason I mentioned as well as based on the info in the attached thread. Not expensive, but the red flags were enough to make me walk away. I could be completely wrong, though!
hello eric,yeah i was not sure either but they are so nice up there and i got it for $10 so even if fake it would display very nice with my bearer patch.thanks eric ,i will wait and see if anyone else has seen one?thanks for posting the link.
Well at $10, I'd say it was well worth it and will make a nice display piece! I think when I saw it, it was being offered for $30....
hello,no they had $20 on it but since you seen it is it breast eagle? to me it looks a little smaller then the normal breast eagles i seen.maybe because its fake im not sure?thanks for the link as you been such a big help.!can anyone tell me from tip to tip on the eagles wings in inches what a breast eagle should be since i have none here to compair?thanks
I'm certainly no expert....................!
Used to be a time when there were no worries about 'BeVo' cap or breast
eagles being faked - they were common. Now that they are commanding
higher prices, even these insignia are being repro'ed.
Thanks for the link, Eric. Knew I'd seen it here before !
here it is displayed..looks ok until i get lucky and find a real one.
It looks good to me. But I am not an authority on these. I think one way to tell is to hold it up to the light. You should see horizontal lines in the outer material area (if that makes any sense.)
thanks again eric, you have been a big help ! take care and pm me anytime.. hello jeff,thanks for that as i will try it. either way its just a great looking eagle and the price was right.thanks guys.
Sure looks good in the display, Pammy.............!
