Army eagle

Article about: Steve, I actually had that thread book marked (amongst many others) as it was a good reference. Pammy, It should measure about 4" from tip to tip. I'm fairly certain this is a breast ea

    Hi Pammy,
    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!

    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....

    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 !

    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.)
