    Default SS Arm Eagle, Real or Fake?

    Hello all

    Posted this earlier in the Heer forum not knowing it was an SS Arm eagle.
    General thought there was it to be a fake but maybe you can give me some more insights.
    Also if it's a fake or real, what would be the value on this?
    Thanks

    Poor fake, no value. Authentic examples are available for around $250.

    IMHO I place no value on these items. Not giving you a hard time but our interest are in real items.

    After a quick google I found one repro selling for $4.00. (so I'm not far off )

    Hope this helps!

    No problem at all, I rather have your honesty than being lied to about an item! To be fair I wasnt expecting it to be good but you never know right. And as you said my interest as well is with original items, this purchase goes back to a time I was young and naive (about 12 years old). It's not the only mistake I made in my collecting years & good thing it wasn't an expensive one!
    Anyway thanks for the help all, much appreciated

    We have all made these mistakes. ALL of us.

    That's why we join WRF. Lol

    I could show you a box of medals I bought that turned out to be fakes. It was painful to learn but in the end I learned a lot and since then I post everything here and have bought no fakes.

    Best of luck and welcome to the forum. Stick around. You will enjoy it.
