Hello,
In my opinion, the luft eagle is a fake.

Welcome to the Forum SudetenDP

Here is an original JFS 42 rune shield. Notice how sharp the runes are compared to the FP 1942 & the different prongs etc. The zink JFS 42 & JFS 43 are the only rune shields widely excepted as original among collectors these days. The JFS 42 & 43 are also faked in aluminum.

The above LW eagle prongs are a red flag as well as the details.
