A short message to add some observations re Spink Eagle.
Hopefully you will find this email relevant as I think it gives the new perspective on the Spink Eagle.
As all of You know, Spink Eagle is the “Classic of Polish Free Eagles” – simply “must have in each quality collection”.
I have been trying to research the Spink Eagle (and other Spink’s products) for some time and developed theory that, I think, had been confirmed “externally” tonight.
I actually think there had been 2 Types of Spink Eagle with some material differences between them (please see the 2 pictures below)
• Looks like 2 Types of stamps had been used, presumably at different points in time
• Differences in measurements and shapes of details are especially clearly visible on eagles that are not bended
• What is even more interesting – the 2 distinctive Types have various types of fastening interchangeably (circles / prongs)
I personally think that the fact that there had been 2 Types of Spink is a relevant find and worth considering when building quality collection.
I have a few Spinks in my collection and for some time wanted to see an “external confirmation” of this theory – 2 types had been sold today on the ebay.
Please share the pictures of your Spinks and perhaps we can catalogue all variations of Types and Fastenings
