    I was hoping to get some information on these two German medals from WWII. I received these from my uncle who was an NCO and a member of the 101 Airborne during the invasion. He was also a part of the team that liberated Dachau concentration camp and this is where I believe he said he relieved some German solder/officer of these. Any info would be appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    I can't tell you anything about the eagle pin as I've never seen one before and wonder if it is actually Third Reich.
    The badge on the other hand is a Luftwaffe Erdkampfabzeichen or Ground Assault badge. Better photos would help but from the above it looks like an original badge from the maker Arno Wallpach. A later war piece made in one piece from zinc. Other makers and earlier badges were made in two parts with the eagle being applied seperately. Do a search here for 'Erdkampfabzeichen' and you will find other examples to compare to.

    I agree with Adrian. The eagle pin is likely a womans brooch.
