That's the reverse of the eagle. I still think it may have a chance... better pictures are needed for sure.

Default Desk Eagle in Question

Hi
This desk eagle is a fake. There have been a few around for sale on a few sites. There is no catalogs that are Third Reich era with this perticular type of eagle.
The base is also not original or is the bolt. This has been aged to look period but definitely a fake.
I wouldn't buy this.

This design did not exist in the TR period. It is a modern day fantasy piece.

Mil, yes and the shop that sells them (pabst, heer, luft & political eagles) sells them as reproductions, does not advertise them as original ... unscrupulous people buy them & try to pass them as original I have seen some of them on auctions in the past. There is another shop that sells NSFK & NSKK plaques & others as reproductions but you will see them all over the net at auction sites selling as original pieces.
