Default Breast eagles

Would be very grateful for any comments regarding these two eagles. IMO the metal eagle looks identical to several eagles found to be original here on WAF. When it comes to the cloth eagle I am very unsure if it is original. I have not found an eagle that is identical to this one here on WAF.

cloth eagle: not OK IMO

metal eagle is good, several variations of this M (J.C. Maedicke, Berlin.) marked type exist: flat pin and flat hook, round pin and round hook, round pin and flat hook

Any more comments? Would be especially grateful for further comments regarding the cloth breast eagle.

I agree with glaser on both counts. The bullion eagle looks like a variant of the Delta International fakes -- perhaps a copy of a copy?

Best regards,
