    Hello,

    I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place.
    I bought this little bird last week, for a very low price, on a flea market.
    I know it is a Kriegsmarine breast eagle, but I really don't know a lot about German stuff.
    I'ts not hollow but a solid one, no makermarks, I understand most of them had no mm.
    But the swastika seems to bee a little off centre on this one.
    Can anyone tell me if this is an early fake or an original?

    Greetings Onno.

    I don't like it at all! The detailing and head shape/size are wrong. I also don't like the hinge and bottom catch.......I'm pretty sure the bottom piece was never on originals, they just had a pin. Wait for others, but I'm sure they'll agree!

    Sorry it is bad. The quality is poor.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Definitely a copy, but the comment about the bottom hook is wrong. Originals normally did feature this.
