    Default WWII German Officer's Breast Eagles

    I am new to the site and this is my first post. I was hoping someone could help me understand German breast eagles. I have a M1936 German engineer officer's tunic and the eagle, while it has metallic thread, is a flat patch. I can post a photo of it as I am sure it will be hard to help me without one, but just a tutorial on breast eagles would be helpful. Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Sounds like a Bevo machine woven flatwire version. Perfectly OK.

    We do have a thread on breast eagles, but this covers enlisted versions.

    Cheers, Ade.

    So then the eagle on my tunic is a correct officer's eagle. Great! This site is truly amazing!

    This type of eagle was used by officers and also by nco's and sometimes other ranks though the latter usually only used them on the dress tunic (Waffenrock). Officers and nco's might use these on any type of tunic.
