    Hello All,
    I first want to thank Aldo for his assistance and my education on these Eagle's.
    He explained which one's were for what time frame and also pointed me in the right direction as to where I could find what I was searching for.
    Thank You Sir!!
    I picked up 2 different Type's. A #3 and a #4 version.

    Here they are on the helmet.

    I like the larger one , But the condition of the smaller fits the wear on the helmet.
    What do you think??

    Great pick ups ! The smaller eagle looks right with the helmet as you said because of the similar wear pattern. The large eagle is grand and would look good on or off a helmet. I’m glad I could help you find these. Nice pics Phil

    I agree, The larger one is more flashy .but considering the wear and patina, The smaller does look more realistic.

    Here are some more around the block pic's of the M26.

    I agree, the smaller tarnished one matches the overall wear and size of the helmet best

    a large badge on a small helmet looks out of proportion

    Thanks James,
    Yes it has been a few years James, I remember we had a discussion about these when I first mentioned I would like to add one to this helmet and you offered your assistance in trying to see if you could find one on your side of the pond. I couldn't find one either for all those years , Until given some outstanding advice and help. I had to go to the Home Country to find these.
