    Default Heer breast eagle with unusual backing

    I'm pretty sure this is an original Heer breast eagle. It has an unusual backing cloth - a very tightly woven bit that looks like tropical cloth. I purchased it at a bid board for 8 US dollars. Apparently, it came from a book originally and had been glued in place. Looking forward to any comments. Thanks, NH

    I agree. This is not an uncommon variant of the Heer adler.

    Hi Neil, another question mark with the backing, it never ends

    It is a curious piece of cloth - I just thought someone might recognize it. Perhaps it is some kind of Feldbluse material. I'm not sure. NH

    Probably correct. I will leave it alone for fear of damaging the insignia. NH

    Hello,

    You have a very nice Heer M40 Mouse grey on grey enlisted man's BeVo breast eagle. It has a neat manucacturing flaw that occurred during weaving. The eagle right wing tip was not finished. The backing material is just that. Something to give it form.
