    Default Reproduction Heer breast eagle

    Hello,

    A friend of mine gave me this eagle. At first I thought it was a very nice first pattern enlisted eagle sewn to a wool backing like a waffenrock eagle. I then looked at the back and saw that it was not even a BeVo eagle! It is an embroidered eagle!!

    Hello Jerry,

    Exactly!! I thought that it wasa nice enlisted eagle,thread not flatwire, mounted on wool. When I flipped it over I then noticed that it was an embroidered eagle.. I had never seen one like it before and then at the SOS I saw another just 2 tables away!! Those were the only 2 that I saw during the entire show. The one I posted was removed from a tunic that was recently purchased in Germany.

    Jerry,

    Andreas, Max and Andi all questioned me when I posted it the first time. They all believed it was fake and I was on the fence about it. They must have seen them before. This is the first time I had ever seen it.

    Hey Fred, nice to see you in WRF. Welcome on board. It will be nice to have another expert on insignia. A friend of mine is calling you the "Doctor of Litzen".
