Default Nazi railway eagle. (Is it genuine?)

Hi all.
My uncle gifted me a Third Reich railway eagle for my birthday.
He bought it from a second hand shop and I imagine it wasn't too expensive so have assumed it isn't genuine.

Would love some feedback to confirm if is is a reproduction or is genuine.

It measures 70cm wide by 80cm high.

Thanks for any help provided!

This eagle is not original sir. There are a few different examples of fakes currently being made. This one does not have a bad look but nevertheless it is still a replica made for the collector market.
