Layoff and the mailman!

Article about: Jerry, The tropical eagle is for a friend in Spain. I am sure he will be happy. The printed eagle is for me! This is the final issue eagle for the German army in WWII. There are some M44/45

    Jerry, The tropical eagle is for a friend in Spain. I am sure he will be happy. The printed eagle is for me! This is the final issue eagle for the German army in WWII. There are some M44/45 type tunics with this type of eagle originally sewn on. To a Heer eagle collector like me this guy is simply beautiful.

    Great birds. The ugliness of the printed ones is part of the collectibility. Sorry to hear about the layoff

    Hi Fred,

    I have one of the km examples so not trying to get it Fred. And I agree about the desirability of the printed version to a collector, but still it is not very pretty.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Most of the late war stuff are too ugly. But still collectible of course.

    I beg to differ with you on that. I love the late war stuff. Subtle hints of greys and greens keeping the same insignia but with a subdued nature. Here are a couple of nice Ryker cases I put together of some insignia that hits a sweet spot for me!!

    Now don't get me wrong. I love the early stuff too! Here is an example of a display where I pulled a collar out of the parts box, made 2 cuffs and sewed a set of mismatched cuff bars together. It shows both lower enlisted and NCO grade insignia together.
