Anyone seen this type of aluminum breast eagle for the KM white tunics before? (sorry for the poor photos)

Dear Fred,

I have seen such an eagle, but not marked in this way. The pin hinge and lower prong assembly are very good quality.

I have also seen eagles in this style for the Heer summer tunic, again without markings. I think these were most likely early period.

I find the marking to be a little unusual and not well done in comparison to the overall quality of the badge itself.

The eagles I seen had well-defined details and edges.

Thanks for the reply John.
Actually the details are better than the photos show, as are the makers marks. They are sharp but deeply set and quite small. They read SCRWERIN over BERLIN followed by a #53 or 58. It even has the same fine stippling between the eagles legs as around the swastika.
Regards
Fred
