    All are good Heer (Army) eagles from the cap or breast.

    Cheers, Ade.

    All are indeed original, the metal Heer cap eagles with the flat edges prong are typically late war design.

    I agree with Ade and Carlsson1982 that all are original period items, with as was said late war cap eagles with edge prongs, I have one of these and a bullion tunic eagle, a bit worn but nice, I also have one of these, though mine does not have the dark thread highlights, though a cap one I used to have did, in dark green.

    wow. given the lack of quaility to the pics I'm surprised to see such definitive opinions.

    You guys have spider sense and good eyes I guess.

    It just comes from years of handling this stuff. The actual wartime zink metal these are made from is pretty distinctive. Modern materials just don't have the same look. See how much of the silver wash finish has disappeared too? Just the odd trace here and there. Again a good sign.

    Cheers, Ade.
