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.

The helmet arrived the day before yesterday and I had a look at it today and everything looks perfect. You packed it up very well indeed. ... I've never seen him so thrilled with a gift!
