Default 2 General breast eagles for review

Hi all,
May I please have your opinions on the following General breast eagles?
Both are uniform removed and seem to be hand embroidered wire bullion thread.

Hello,

I don't care for the bottom eagle. The top eagle ,to me, is a nice original that was denazified and somebody else put a new swastika on it. The hand bullion work between the body and the swastika is non comparable.

For me bouth eagle are originals. The top, example is nice and I can't see why the swastica is removed. I would use it to restore a nice general officer uniform!
The uper one is also okay, but not the nicest example and maby a france made?
However for me bouth are okay.

Thanks for all the feedback so far. A bit of a mixed bag of opinion.
I am still at a loss if they are good or bad

The second eagle is a regular KM breast eagle, on blue background, cut out and glued onto a piece of green cloth to make it look like a general eagle or KA. See background of swastika they couldn't trim and it's also lost its top bullion line above the wings in the process.
Agree with opinions on the other one.

I could be wrong

Again thanks for all the information. It is always much appreciated. The two eagles are winging their way to me from the dealer as we speak so I will be able to judge better with them in hand when I get them.

P.S. I should have taken up quantum physics as a hobby. Slightly less complicated me thinks
