    Hi folks,

    Got a new little item today, a zinc Heer breast eagle. Thought I'd add this one to the forum.

    It's unmarked, but I think it may be from the same maker as Ralph's here:

    Summer Tunic Breast Eagles

    Note the similarities of the bottom edge of the wings between the two examples, where the left wing (eagles right) has a round middle hump, and the right wing has a flat one on both. I didn't see this feature on other's I found except for these two. The head style is similar too, though Ralph's has the better finish (a belated congrats on that beauty Ralph).

    Hello Scott,
    Thank you!
    I think the basic shape of the eagles head and the hardware are the main differences on these. Yours does appear to be from the same maker as the one I posted.
    Congrats on adding this one to your collection!
    Ralph.

    Thanks Ralph.

    If you ever find out who the maker on these models are and think about it, please let me know. I'd like to note it in my records if we can ever identify them.
