    Default Cloth German Eagle, is this a Tropical Eagle or am I mistaken.

    I've been wrong about a few items lately, so instead of trusting the information I have, I'd better defer to those who know for sure.
    I know this is a cloth eagle, but I do not know if it is from Afrika Korps or not, I just know its not Luftwaffe.
    Had someone interested in it also so before I do ANYTHING now I have to double check. Hopefully its original at least!

    No it is not tropical. It is for a regular enlisted tunic.

    As Steve posted, it looks fine though is not tropical but is for the EM's tunic from 1940 onwards.

    Here are some tropical eagles from my collection.

    Oh nice, thanks for the info, at least its original! I see the ones in your collection have a more yellow toned color scheme. Always amazed at any original cloth items...made so well! I've got a few more to ask about but it will be nice to put this in on display!
    Thanks Again

    Hello there,

    Agreed, a Heer enlisted rank breast eagle for the grey/green tunic. Here's a M43 cap with a similar toned eagle.

    Us and them - and after all were only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows its not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.
