Eagle Badge x 4
Here are some more uniform badges the first one looks reasonable but I am not really sure because I not a badge collector.
1 wing span 2 3/4inch h 1/14 inches
2 wing span 4 1/4inch h 2 inches
3 same as 2
4 wing span 2inch h including pin 2 1/4

The 1st one is supposed to be an SS cap eagle, the 2nd and 3rd Heer cap eagles and the 4th is a stickpin. As for authenticity I can't say for certain but I don't like them.
I dont hold much hope on them being good, nice to see someone else from Derbyshire.
The stickpin is the closest to being OK but I cant see the spiral in the pin??

The pin has no grip marks.
The 2nd and 3rd are fakes of the KM Admin eagle for the front of a tropenhelm.
As Dan mentioned only the stickpin has a chance and as it is missing the spiral on the pin that is also a copy, nothing good in this batch IMHO.
its just an opinion.
Thanks everyone I appreciate your help.
