    Lacks the overall quality and detail of an original, in particular the space between the detail is a bit gappy if there is such a word. Look at some normal cap eagles and it should be the same only black backing. Further to that there exists black for the mechanics that wore black coveralls and a black hat too so not all are automatically Panzer or HG for that matter. Send it back or find something else on his page that is unquestionable? Best Rich

    The voided lower tail feathers on the 26th Hussars is an interesting variation. That gives me something to keep an eye out for. The only WRC badge I have picked up lately is this 25th Dragoons OSD collar badge.

    From my collection.Its not militaria,but it is connected to WW2 history.At 05:30 July 16,1945 these rocks were formed.The most common name is Trinitite.But AKA Alamogordo glass and atomsite.These I traded for when I was a mere kid in the mid 1960's.We lived in New Mexico and like most young lads I liked to drag home all kinds of what my mother referred to as "crap".Our neighbor had a bucket of the stuff he collected before it was shut off.I showed such interest in the stuff he gave me a handful of it.I still have 3 pieces of it traded the rest off over the years.Link provided for more info on it. the photo shows a top and base of 2 specimens. https://www.lanl.gov/museum/news/newsletter/2018/04/trinitite.php
