Default Metal eagles with black iron cross on chest

I have two of these in different sizes. I assume the smaller one would fit on a cap and the one a bit bigger would go on the chest. Does the black iron cross on the eagle signify that the wearer is a veteran? If so, do only veterans wear this type of eagle?

These are from the RKB Reichskriegerbund.

A Veterans organization, and you are correct that the smaller eagle is for the visor hat, and the larger eagle is for the breast.

Hello guys,
I have noticed that these badges are highly faked especially for maker marked 15 for Fredrick oarth.
Does any one have a believed to be original maker marked 15 cap and wreath/cockade to show the forum?
