BACKGROUND: Allegedly the first pattern Third Reich political national eagle was personally designed by Adolf Hitler himself and was introduced on November 4TH 1927. Originally the first pattern eagle was worn on the Kepi by SA and SS personnel and wasn't adopted for wear by NSDAP political leaders until 1931. Uniform regulations of January 1934 introduced a second pattern political style national eagle and a further modified eagle was introduced in 1936, and again in 1937 with a final form being introduced in April 1939.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 1939 pattern, stamped alloy eagle, with a wing span of 65mm, who clutches a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons. 98% of its original fire gilt is complete. To its hollow-backed reverse are fixed three attachment prongs. Reverse is well marked with embossed RZM logo with dual circular borders and manufacturers code, "M1/24" indicating manufacture by for Overhoff & Cie., Lüdenscheid. Nice!
