    Default SS eagle 475/42 Zinc

    Hello Gentlemen ,
    May I have your opinion on this eagle please.I read that prongs were very fragile, do you have an idea of how to bend them in safe. I don't want to brak them
    Thank you in advance.

    Hmm looks like the most of the prongs already has broken. They should be longer, and the third one is totally broken off. Only way to bend metal is to heat it up. But I donīt know how the fastening of the prongs will react on heavy heating. If itīs authentic or not I canīt say but you should post a picture of the front side also.

    From the pics, I'm not 100 percent sure of the eagle itself, even if I do believe it's original.
    However, I'm 100% sure that the prongs are not original.

    I think I'm right in saying that the Wagner eagles have straight pins, not rounded ones. Although the insignia does look good, much better photographs are needed to determine it's authenticity.
    These are heavily faked, and well too!

    Thank you John,
    yes, you are right these 475/42 are highly faked and I am sorry for my skill in photos but it's the best that I can make . I have also made my home work and found these two eagles posted on WAF which I think, but I can be wrong ,have the same characteristic of rounded pins and using exactly the same fonts than the eagle posted in the first post. The two on WAF passed the thumbs up.
    Thank you
