    Question Luftwaffe Lapel Pin: Opinions Please

    Hey, all. I recently found this piece (a lapel pin I believe) in storage. I got it a long while back when I was younger and was just looking for a little feedback as I think I am going to try to sell it.
    I almost certain that it's authentic, however it's a little odd in that the eagle is facing in the opposite of the usual direction. It's also salty and has some cracks as seen in the photos.
    Anyone have any thoughts on this piece or what to sell it for? (very cheap I am thinking.) I'm also wondering what the metal is (zinc or kriegsmetall?) and if maybe this is an earlier piece because of the direction the eagle is facing?

    Any info or feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Best,
    Adam

    Hi Adam, looks fine to me. The eagle can be found facing either way..

    Cheers, Ade.

    It looks like it is made of zinc.
    Perhaps the pin was broken and resharpened,
    as it is shorter than normally seen........
    Regards,


    Steve.
