    Always happy to offer an opinion if I think I know enough to make it worthwhile to give it. As others have said, the Heer trop tunic eagle looks to be almost certainly a good original and is worth on it's own way more than £40 and the same for the luft, though hard to say much from the pic. If both are right, you are "quids in" and the tropenhelm shield is an added bonus. I would risk £40 on the strength of these pics
    Regards,

    Hello again my friends.
    They have arrived !
    What do you think of them ? They look ok to me comparing them to Jerrys apart from that vulture beak. But then again what do I know.
    As always any comments are welcome good or bad.
    Regards Rod

    The two Heer eagles, cloth and metal are both original, the luftwaffe is also probably good and it's ragged appearance might be from it having been laundered. Machine embroidered luftwaffe eagles came from a multitude of makers and the variations this creates is nearly endless.

    Thanks guys
    This might seem like a daft question but would this white eagle fail a black light test, like fake ribbons?
    Its just that I tried it, and it was ok but I wasnít sure if it works or not.
    Regards

    Real cloth examples might also fail a black light test, but mostly, fakes fail and originals pass.
