Schlesischer Adler / Silesian Eagles

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My personal opinion: "Echte Auflage" means here, that the additions as the half moon and the letter band are in (genuine) silver, or they are at least (genuine) silver plated.

Being a native speaker, you should know. Thanks for the clarification.

then why is the obverse of the badge fairly shiny and bright after nearly 100 years? no signs or smells indicating recent cleaning--- one would think that being made of brass it would be extremely tarnished. the reverse certainly is tarnished, but not the obverse. the silver half moon and letter band are somewhat tarnished, as would be expected from silver or silver plate.

Here one of mines. Silesian eagles on non combatant bars are not often to find. The piece is a probemässige Anfertigung made of blackend iron.
