    There is a thread about this same eagle on the WAF, also by somebody from Sweden, maybe you. At least two other similar looking examples were posted, with the backing cloth. No firm conclusion has been reached.

    It looks very well made with nice details.

    Oh, found the thread WAF now.
    Well I think it looks good and could be original. But fakes these days can be good, tho.

    Anyway, didn't pay that much for it (40).

    It would be great if you can post some more pics when you get it. Thats a good price if its real and it looks a quality item.

    Yeah, I will post pictures asap. Guess it would be a good deal if it's original.

    Gold is Kriegsmarine. Unusual wool/cloth backing - never seen it before
    on this type of insignia. Photos of the reverse/pin arrangement
    should tell if it is a good one though............

    I got it today. It got two of the three prongs left and three layers of cloth. I'm pretty sure that it's original, now that I've got it in my hands.

    Can't find any stamps etc on the parts where the cloth is loose. Don't want to remove it to check under the cloth...

    Now I'm confused, not a tunic pin attachment type I have seen before and not the same as for a Tropenhelm, maybe for a photo album.

    It looks quality, but not sure on it's original function. What is the wingspan?

    PS, I never mentioned it as being KM rather Heer, as I had already seen it elsewhere and was beyond correcting that sort of question, though it could be for a Heer General.

    Hi Jerry,
    It looks like it's been cut from a blue jacket or tunic. It got it's main dark-blue/black backing, paper, rough lightblue cloth and thin blue backing. By judging the colour, it would have some connection to KM?
