You can find enlisted eagle plates with a reserve cross stamped on them, and hence integral to the plate, but without the writing. It provided the space where the actual cross was soldered.
Steve this wappen is cracked on the wings and you can see that they are soldered.Waste of money.Regards.Point well taken Tony. As always I am here to learn- and enjoy the process. IF I get a reverse picture (and its a big if) I will know the truth of the matter. From that poor picture I could not tell if it was a brass/gilt wappen or a neusilber version, in both cases covered in a thick layer of !%&**.
I have a spare neusilber wappen below but the rest of my EM helmet is brass mounted so: no match, hence my looking hopefully at this one.
Perhaps we shall see, if they get back to me. Thanks for looking.
