Help on Kuban Shield
Wanted to get opinions on this. Concerns are the str. 4 and detail on eagle head. Any help much appreciated.

It's a good shield (type 5.2) from an unknown maker. These usually have side tabs on the reverse for fixing to the backplate, but this one clearly has prongs and is a known, but rarer set up. Please upload the pic's directly to the thread as when the ad dies, so will the photo's thus rendering this thread useless.
