Hi All,
new to this forum, it might seem obvious to you, but just wanted to confirm. What do you think? Never seen such "eagles".....

First group are Luftwaffe mess hall ware. The second group is Reich's Arbeits Dienst (RAD) labor Service of higher quality than most (probably officers rank). Both sets are original, the RAD is scarcer of the two.

Thanks John! Those eagles look awfully sloppy to me on aluminum knifes. Look at this example to compare:

Just a different maker with a different eagle... Many variations.
