    Default Identification of unknown cloth eagle (possibly Italian)

    Hello! This is my first post in this section!

    I'm trying to identify this cap/breast/sleeve eagle. After posting it along with the Luftwaffe eagle, some have suggested that it might be Italian, so I'm posting here for some confirmation, if possible. It's the one on the right of course!

    Thank you very much in advance for any insight into this one! It's quite interesting looking.

    I'm fairly sure it isn't Italian, the eagle is very similar to ones used by some Arab countries!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Very interesting! The seller is offering both eagles for 18, so I think I will buy them and just keep researching the mystery bird.

    The Luftwaffe adler is well worth 18 on it's own!..

    Great! At least I won't lose on the deal, then! Maybe the strange little bird will reveal its secrets in person.

    By the way, can you tell from the picture if the Luftwaffe Adler is a breast or cap eagle? I know the pound coin is there for scale, but I don't know how big those are!

    I think it might be British! The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards use a similar eagle on their pole tops and uniforms.

    Thanks! I will pursue that lead to see if it leads anywhere. This one really has me stumped. It's been shipped from the UK, so I should have it in hand in a week or so.
