IMO a possible fake. Notice how the metal isn't cut between the eagle's head and wings. Haven't seen too many examples of these though, so can't say for sure.
Hi, I agree with Blitzvogel, all the examples I have seen ( not that many I do admit) have the "cut out" between the adlers head and wings. I would lean towards this one being a fake. Leon.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
