Title Kriegsmarine gilt breast eagle
Nationality German
Period 1936-45
Sold

This is the eagle for the tropical tunic, and also sometimes worn on the white summer tunic, of the German navy in WW2. This example is made of gilt zinc, thus probably a mid-war production. The gilding is nearly 100%. No maker mark (although I don't think they were normally marked).

There is a slight bend in the feathers of one wing, where it may have been bent and straightened.

Just a quick note to let you know that my bayonet arrived safely today. Many thanks for the speedy delivery and overall excellent service! For its age this bayonet is in fantastic condition.

I will mark your website as a 'favourite'...

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.
