    Not one for me. The eagle seems to attempt to mimic the FLL type but there are critical differences in my opinion, and the rear set up looks like that on the Juncker 1943 pattern. The wreath detail seems poor and looks almost as if it's cast. Too many anomalies that don't add up from my chair.

    Please figure out how to orient your photos properly before posting.
    It is not fair to the members you are asking for help to have to look at them sideways and figure out if they are good or not. Sometimes even when they are posted the right way it is still difficult to tell the originals from the copies.

    Thanks Ralph. Unfortunately, I cannot rotate the images; however, if you click on the individual pictures they appear correctly. When I uploaded the images onto the forum they appeared sideways for some reason.

    Cast for me too. Look at the eagles wings, a giveaway IMO, sorry. Stewy

    I'll "trice" the cast vote I'm afraid, the reverse of the wreath shows several pitting flaws from casting. Leon.

    Thanks guys for the feedback. I thought it was reproduction as well. I just needed to be sure. Don't worry I did't buy this item.
