Any ideas about this unusual Eagle....?


Recommended Posts

Hi Dan

Strange, the eagle is reminiscent of an early Polish pilot’s badge, or pre-war German flying club insignia, but isn’t either of those as far as I can tell..... certainly not an official piece.

I can only think that the addition of the eagle with swastika was in some way a patriotic gesture as a remembrance of the retaking of the Sudetenland.

Hi Paul

No can do im afraid - the photos were all i had from the seller (bar one of the case), and it is no longer on offer as he sold it for almost double its asking price yesterday! Someone obviously knows a little bit more than me about the odd bird!

I am a little miffed as it was on hold for me, but what can you do?

As far as the eagle goes my feelings were also that it was Polish in origins, modified to carry the swastika charm.
