    The wreath and cockade looks fine. But I am not sure about the eagle to be honest? I would err on the side of caution and pass on it if offered to me. The metal used looks odd for a Luftwaffe eagle. Is it alloy?

    Cheers, Ade.

    An odd looking eagle, never seen an assmann marked like that with the big 42, and the old style A, so like Ade, I would pass, though it could be good. Wreath probably good.

    I think's that it's just aluminium.
    I saw one like this in a very known militaria site selling a Assmann of '43 with the very same style:

    That one I like. It is the material that bothers me on the other.

    Cheers, Ade.

    May be some better pic's are needed..
    Assmann did use also aluminium in his insignia, that's a fact.
    like e.g a ss cap skull, ss cap eagle etc
