    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    The swastika is proper, it justt is thick.... it is facing the right direction.

    I have been trying to find a breast eagle constructed the same way and I can't. My concerns are the thickness of the embroidery and the darker hue of the thread...

    John, do you have a similar example?

    I have Theory on this eagle, makes sense to me.... this eagle came with a small grouping of U- boat items, including two workers pins/badges for the pens at La Pallice. Perhaps with the odd, burlap type backing,this eagle is from sub pen workers coveralls?
