    Hello all,

    Anyone have any issues with this breast eagle? It came with a Para badge that I am not so sure about either.

    Hi William, I think these are both artificially aged fakes.

    The breast eagle lacks the highlight stitches to the upper set of wing feathers: these should be there. Yet they show on the reverse? Odd.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    I appreciate you taking the time to look at this one for me. It almost looks like the highlights have worn away from the obverse and you can see a shadow on the left wing of where it once was. Perhaps when being removed from the tunic these were stripped as well? It very well may be a fake, and it is on coarse wool.
