VERY RARE BIG ORIGINAL 1937 NAZI EAGLE TROPHY

HOHEITSADLER

(SOVEREIGNTY EAGLE)

THIS FANTASTIC ITEM WAS AWARDED TO A WEHRMACHT UNTEROFFIZIER IN 1937 AT A SHOOTING CONTEST

This is one of the nicest original Third Reich tropies we have seen. It has a total height of 480mm (18-7/8 inches)! The eagle and swastika alone are 185mm (7-1/4 inches) tall. Oak leaves are wrapped around the metal tube. The stone base has no chips or cracks. Engraved at the top are the words: "Uffz.-Preisschiessen 1937" (Non-Commissioned-Officer / NCO Shooting Contest 1937). There is a lot of unused space for future engravings, we therefor think that this trophy might have been supposed to become a challenge trophy. But for some reason no winners names are engraved in this wonderful piece of art. The only imperfection of this truly impressive trophy is that the eagle does not stand parallel to the stone base. Somebody must have tightened it and filled the hole where the bolt and nut are located with some material that has hardened out. We did not make any attempt to remove this material and bring the eagle back into its original position but this should not require a lot of skills to do.

A genuine piece of Third Reich history which comes with a lifelong guarantee for its authenticity.
