SS Eagle 475/42 - Ferdinand Wagner

Article about: My latest eagle arrived today, a well worn SS 475/42 by Ferdinand Wagner. I realize it's a zinc stinker with no prongs but the price was right. It's chunky and heavier than my cupal and alum

    I picked up another chunky Wagner eagle. This one has less silver finish on the zinc and retains one prong. This one is also flat compared to the other specimen that is nicely vaulted. Enjoy.

    Nice score Al, congrats! I just purchased a wagner thats an identicle twin of the first one you posted, missing prongs and all. For some reason I couldnt download pics from the site, will have to wait till it gets here.

    Thanks Dan ! I just found these images of one that sold on another European website, it's a 1939 manufacture. The one thing in common seems to be their relatively affordable price range due to the condition

    Yes I agree, mine was about half the price of a mint zimmerman eagle per se. Another common trait seems to be the week prongs. But for the money, I thought why not, zink is zink, it is what it is, a nice peice of SS regalia!

    Exactly Dan, knowing the SS insignia market trends.... today's zinc stinker is tomorrow's treasured piece. I remember discussing the absurd price of a zinc Overhoff TK that sold for $1600 just 3 years ago. Those absurd prices are standard now. A zinc Overhoff sold for between $800 and $1100 at the time of that post to give you perspective. Buy em while you can, LOL

    I couldnt agree more Al. Ive been snatching up those little m1927 pattern eagles lately. Theyre plentiful and cheap now, and look great paired up with any TK. But who knows, what if those little guys start approaching the price of the bigger eagles?!
