Estate Sale Find, a WWII German patch
I was in at an estate sale today and I found two of these patches for $3 USD among some American Boy Scout patches. Apparently they thought that it was just another boy scout patch
I was wondering what the history behind this patch is or what this came from. Basically, I would love some information on this piece of history.

I think it is for the white jumper worn by the kriegsmarine enlisted men.....

Dan's ID is correct. But I don't believe it to be original.

Ok thanks! So my questions is, how can I tell it is reproduction or real?
Like Ade, the French eagles are better, and not marvelous!!!!
Sorry to bother you guys but the patch is real WW2 German Kriegsmarine white jumper tunic eagle
I have absolutely no problem with this eagle. This pattern is done in a few different colors, white on blue, gold on blue and gold on tan from what I have seen.
LEARN THE PATTERN OF THE ORIGINALS, THEN THE FAKES WILL BE APPARENT!
