    Hi Folks,

    Nice classic stuff !


    I love the buntmetal drooptail, they're great quality.

    Then the aluminum small A DRGM, nice one too..

    Then one with a crimped in hinge.., scarce, but not rare.., nice bird.

    I think Ramckes eagle is a gold one, but heavily polished, so it might look like silver.., compared to his gold buttons the color is closer than compared to the frame of his KC, no ?


    Classic late war zinker, nice original.

    I asked for diffent makers, but in fact I should've said different patterns, because we'll not see any makermarks other than Assmann, I'm afraid..

    At the moment I've 8 different makers and I think I've seen 4 others over the years , which makes 12..

    Only the Assmann's were marked and I've seen one drooptail marked Steinhauer & Luck .

    I've 2 different eagles with crimped in hinge and 2 plated in KupAl, aluminum covered with a sheet of silver plated copper..

    Like to find more patterns in future.

    Will post some soon.

    Many pics are showing Summer eagles on different kind of jackets, shirts and even caps..

    I've seen them sofar on the white 4 pocket jacket, but also on leather jackets, tropical jackets, HBT jackets, flight blouse, the 4 pocket garbadine, shirts and Winter caps..

    Here's a strange one..

    A General with Summer eagle over the triangular shirt eagle..

    I dont own one, but you guys have posted some great examples. I really like the Luftwaffe Official's grouping. Can you please make a new thread and post some closeups of his photo and paperwork? Admin stuff is of particular interest to me!! :jumping::jumping:
