Default Panzer Generals eagle?

Hi Guys,

I have this rather handsome bird which appears to be on black backing cloth meaning it would be for the Panzer tunic.
I have overlayed it on some dark KM blue insignia and it does appear to be black.

Would appreciate your comments on it though before listing for sale.

many thanks

Patrick

I think the fabric is still dark blue. It 's best to watch an eagle on black cloth.

Hello Patrick,
I like the comparable test you have made
It is a splendid eagle but more comparison is needed, the dark blue is always difficult to discern but it is there like Yury says.
I have a dark blue km eagle that looks blacker than an SS eagle
A very bright light needed

Kind regards Chay

For the comparable test to stand any success for the viewer like me the object needs to be on a colour we can agree on.
Der blanc background isn’t working

Kind regards Chay"

Itís clear to see itís a nice KM eagle

The blue is obvious
Iím using an iPad with brightness turned up full and one can see the difference in colour
I circled an area of easy dark blue but the whole material is just very dark blue

Kind regards Chay
