Sleeve eagle query
Firstly I hope my incoherent babbling and total lack of 3rd Reich knowledge doesnít mask my question and Iím sorry I donít have a better photo.
Iíd like to get a sleeve eagle one day if I can afford one just to put with a relative's WWII belongings, but am aware there were variants and would prefer one as in the photo on our right which unfortunately can hardly be seen.
The other one has a larger gap between the top of the wing and the next line and as I havenít spotted one like this amongst all of those shown here on the forum, I was wondering if the gap just looks that way in the photo (the wing seen on the right doesnít have the gap) or could it be that the eagles shown are from different manufacturers?
To me the eagleís head in this thread looks very similar but the wing is different SS Sleeve Eagle
Thanks for any advice

There are Many variations of the sleeve eagles. Many different makers and different eras,etc. as well. If you are looking for one, there are several available for sale in the Classifieds here that you may want to take a look at.

Thanks for the reply and putting me straight on the variations.
Yes I regularly look at the eagles in the classifieds and I'll no doubt buy from here but need to put the money to the side first without my wife knowing why.
So you hide this hobby from the wife, eh Tony?
My wife has horses and my justification is that her hobby turns a $20 bale of hay into a $1 bag of manure.....
And hey presto, no more arguments!
