    It looks more like a pigeon than an eagle to me. Furthermore, the casting is pretty rough and I doubt it's gold either as there is no hallmark. IMO it's a poor fake I'm afraid.

    Unfortunately, what Should have been a very nice piece is simply a modern day made item. The head of the eagle, as Ned said, is extremely poor in detail-particularly the beak. And, yes-I doubt very much also, if it actually is solid gold. You could always have it tested,I suppose, but there's really little point in doing so, as basically, why bother testing a fake? I kind of Like the little box it's in, but, alas, it, too, is modern.

    I agree that it is probably a fake, but I would still have it professionally tested. If gold, it will be worth some money.

    Welcome to our Forum. The piece is definitely a post war fantasy item.
