Exactly, Mark. Didn´t like this piece from the beginning. The closed claws don´t fit either to any coat of arms, either they have open claws or they are holding something in the claws, but not only fists.

Hello Mark. Think it was a wise decision. If you haven't found the centre heraldics yet, I suggest you have a look at the coat of arms for Toledo, Spain.

Why I posted my plea here, to get good to the point information. I, like you all, when we see something we have no clue, ask first, then buy, not like these beginners, bahaha they buy something, then have second thoughts .lol am I right??

100 percent :D
Great job, waleed, I was without success when searching the coat of arm.
But now it´s even more obvious what a poor piece of crap this wall eagle is:
- crown: fail
- eagle heads: fail
- wings: fail
- shield: fail (towers, flower missing)
- wings: fail
- livery collar: fail, due to missing
- legs: fail

This piece is even too bad for burning!
