    I agree with Jim, it is a toned Heer decal.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks.

    Good test is to hold up on an angle to a bright light and see if there are gold flecks or foil reflecting back. Also check to see if gold color is uniform over decal. Most, but not all, Heer decals show an uneven color if yellowing is caused by age.KM eagles appear GOLD and not yellow. This is immediately noticable when compared side by side.

    The decal is not correct , with better photos it is easier to tell.
