Default Flatwire cap eagle on estand for discussion

Here is the link
http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=988157

bewanek1 I hope i'm wrong if so i apologise for putting your item up for discussion.
But if i'm correct it saves someone making a expensive mistake.
I believe your cap eagle is one that i was caught out with a few years ago,it is very convincing but not quite right.
Here is the pictures of the eagle.
Cheers
Dave.

I agree, it certainly works for me. The lighting and angled shots perhaps don't do it justice ?

hi everyone & bewanek1
Last thing i want to do is cause trouble and arguments.
I appreciate all everyone's input so the general consensus it both the cut off and my example are good?. am i correct it thinking both are identical.
Here is the thread that put me off my example
http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...wire+cap+eagle

if i am wrong it's a expensive mistake for me because rather than put any fakes in a box i must have slung it
Cheers
Dave.

I don't consider it "trouble" to raise questions...particularly in an effort to ensure that only authentic pieces are sold on the estand. Moreover, I am proud of my reputation and the last thing I would want is to be involved in the sale of anything fake. So, I welcome discussion.

I bought this piece years ago and have never questioned it. Like others here, I always considered it a one-looker. However, because of this thread, I blacklighted it and it does not glow. I am not sure what else I can tell you.

Not sure about the wool backing it looks like it's a piece of wool carpet and not an original cap cut off just my observation
