    Hi Ade,

    Yes a nice textbook hand embroidered officers eagle.

    With collectors holding onto them like gold (actually these are worth more than their weight in gold) and all the fakes popping up, it's getting rarer to see them on the web.

    Ade,

    This ourstanding eagle has every single earmark of what should be looked for in an original officer's eagle of the RZM type. There are good fakes, but none that look like your original. These originals have gotten very pricy, but have always been scarce and in great demand.

    Bringing this old thread back up to illustrate what an original should look like.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Will the fakes pass the blacklight test or is the best way to spot a fake the construction of the eagle alone?

    Hi, current fakes will pass the blacklight test and have so done for a number of years now.

    The best one is to look closely at the construction, multi threads, etc. Many will have an incorrectly formed swastika. Note the "fat" looking swastika which should fill the wreath. Fakes are often conversly better defined.

    Cheers, Ade.
