War Tropical Breast Eagle

Good day

What do you think of this tropical breast eagle? I've not seen a setup quite like this so I suspect it is hooky.

Many thanks

James

And this cloth one which i have my doubts about but it is similar to a Thiele & Steinert made example for dress uniforms that is shown in the Breast eagle thread. #225 on page 2 of the thread.

Both look good to me,
The metal breast eagle is unusual

Kind regards Chay

Thanks Chay,

I've not been able to find a similar example of the metal eagle with this set up which is what made me suspicious.

Seen one before...Unusual variant with reversed hardware from what most of these eagles have but very nice & original IMO
