Default Luftwaffe metal summer breast eagle

Hello,
I bought this eagle along with some other items. I assumed that it was a replica, but the detail makes me doubt.
Can someone confirm if it is indeed replica, or perhaps original afterall?

Thanks!

IMO you had it right from the beginning this is a repro. The majority of Luft summer eagles are solid back, some are semi hollow stamped and only one original hollow stamped Luft eagle has shown up so far but it is deep die like the other Luft birds. The type you show is thin hollow stamped like many Heer/KM types but they didnt make them that way for luft except for photo album covers. The marking seems to be an "LDO" # on yours but I've also seen a few with RZM marks as well! Whatever helps them sell I guess.

Regards

JC

I have to agree, this is a postwar made copy.
