    Default Luftwaffe Breast Eagle

    Ok boys here is a question that just popped into my mind earlier today. In my collection and in ww2 reference books their are 2 luftwaffe breast eagle colors: silver eagle on blue-gray background, and silver eagle on blackish gray background. Why? What's the difference? Different stages of war? Different campaigns?

    Hello,
    I'm not very specialized in Luftwaffe insignia, but as far as i know there are more than two types of breast eagles. Concerning the backing, you can find numerous types including grey-blue wool, black wool, tan cloth, green cloth. It depends of the garment it was meant to be sewed on...

    Later war produced eagles are often a more grey shade of wool.

    And of course the early FJ smock eagle was grey/green backed. Dave has showed a superb example on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.
