    Default 2 Odd Birds - are they copies?

    Good day gentlemen

    I got these amongst some good ones. What are these?

    In the pair the one on the left is stamped copper (is it a copy?) and the one on the right looks like a current version or a copy

    Can you tell me the manufacturers of the other three?

    Many thanks

    James

    Hi James,

    Perhaps they are restrikes.

    The copper bird has caused some interest. I've had a number of PMs enquiring about it but not offering any information on it. What do the experts think?

    Here are some better pictures of it.

    Regards

    James

    Hi James,

    I've sent you a PM on this eagle too. I am of an opinion that this is a restrike.

    Cheers,

    Nice one Kosa. A scarcely seen Samuel Kretschmer (Jerusalem) eagle.

    Cheers,

    Thank you That's right. One of the more expensive birds in my collection. I've seen it in period photos of the Carpathian Lancers.

    Cheers,
