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.

How many photos show both classes of the Silesian Eagle being worn at the same time.

 

Here is a Heer Administration Official wearing two Silesian Eagles.

Great grouping. The signature on the retirement doc is of course Heinrich Luebke, the president who one famously said to a crowd in Africa, "Meine Damen und Herren, und andere Neger" (Ladies and Gentlemen, and other Negroes", and who can forget his audience with the Queen, when he blurted out "Equal goes it loose!!", when in fact he was trying to say, "Gleich geht es los".

"Meine Damen und Herren, liebe Neger!" - angeblich 1962 beim Staatsbesuch in Liberia, wahrscheinlich nur erfunden, siehe zeit.de

Real:

"Die Leute müssen ja auch mal lernen, dass sie sauber werden." - Staatsbesuch in Madagaskar, 1962

Kind regards
