Luftwaffe Cape Eagle.
Hi all. I have a couple of images of a Luftwaffe cape eagle a collector friend of mine wanted to share with the community. This is a beautiful piece he's had for at least 25 years. The bullion work is fantastic! There is a tiny glass bead for the eye. I've seen a few here on the forum, but this one ,IMO, is especially nice. Have a look. Thanks!

What a beauty, I love them too, here is my one example...
Incredible quality-it certainly must have been a private purchase for a high ranking officer. I wonder who it was for? I've never seen one with a Bead in the eye before. Excellent piece!
