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.

I am more and more pleased with the sword, and am wondering whether to do an article on it...

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
