    Default ss eagle Real or Fake?

    I've had this one for around 20 years so I thought its time to see if its real or fake. Thanks in advance! Also if you can do the same or at least ID the other I would be very grateful!

    The two pins with clasps on the left and right are good.
    ( I know that much ! ) I am not fond of the patination
    on the eagle - looks contrived/artificially aged.

    Unfortunately, they are from a host site, and I cannot
    enlarge them. Could you please post the pics
    directly onto the Forum.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Better, but still not clear from here - I'll leave these
    to the SS experts.

    The badges are known as tinnies. Enameled one is:
    'Your Hand - Craftsmanship'. Both of these are
    relatively common, the handwerke badge is
    not seen as often.........

    Moved this over to the cap insignia sub forum for you.

    The skull is a Heer Panzer collar tab insignia.

    Thanks! I know SS stuff is faked a lot so it won't be a major surprise if it is. I thought the Skull was from a panzer uniform but wasn't sure. I just curious as to whether they are real.

    well, you can find a lot of threads about this typical fake eagle. Type "pidgeon-head" eagle.
    Kind Regards,
