Thanks guys. This one is not a keeper, as I have a number of them in green and gray.

Figured I would share a textbook SS FJ smock eagle from an unissued "Dachau hoard" smock which popped up over the weekend.

Indeed, and the frayed edges of the swab are ideal for studying GM cloth.

Juan, congrats on obtaining the eagle! It is a nice one! I sold it at the Kassel Show. It came from a veteran from Philadelphia a number of years ago. I think it came from an unissued smock.
