Neat, WH (Heeres) breast-eagle of the so-called: 'M41'- (ie. 'M43'-) pattern 'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere') as executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern that comes in a clearly 'cut-out-of a tunic'-, condition
The attractive piece - being a WH (Heeres) mid-war-period- and/or greyish-coloured breast-eagle of the so-called: 'M41'- (ie. 'M43'-) pattern (ie. 'Brustadler für Mannschaften u. Unteroffiziere des Heeres') - is executed in the neat 'BeVo'-weave pattern on a field-grey-coloured background and was moderately used and was carefully 'cut-out-of a tunic': some stitching- and/or thread-remains are still present and/or visible and the piece still retains the remains of the tunic on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). The eagle shows some moderate wear, age and/or staining as to be expected and is neatly (period hand-stitched!) onto a piece of typical, field-grey-coloured Heeres-type wool as mentioned above. It deals with so-called: 'early- ie. mid-war-pattern'-breast-eagle that was worn from 1941 onwards throughout the entire war. The piece shows some minimal staining simply caused by decades of storage only and originates from the US where it was brought as a veteran bring-back souvenir.
