    Default Luftwaffe Breast Eagle and Rank Chevron

    Picked these up from a well known local collector last week that was selling a few items.

    He said the eagle was authentic, but wasn't 100% sure about the chevron, so I got it at a discount with the eagle.


    How did I do?











    Also have these. They look to be WW2 German pebbled hollow dish buttons, but seem to have been painted tan at some point. Any input?

    Looks to be a hat eagle when compared to the chevron .

    Is that an eagle for the Hermann Göring division?

    I think both cloth items are fine but the photos are a bit blurry. What color background on the Adler? Are the painted buttons marked? No telling when they were painted but if it is a really high quality paint there is a chance they were period painted. Any context for these items? NH

    Tunic I would say?

    Crappy pics but the eagle and chevron look to almost certainly be good. Hard to tell the colour, but they may be HG Div. Not really much to say on the buttons, except better pics better pics better pics.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Here are some better pictures.








    One button has what appears to be a clover marking with letters SME, a couple have A&S markings, one is marked ASG 42, and one is marked with an M.







    Here's another pebbled one, but is not hollow dished. It says Extra Fein.
