Belgian Made SS Sleeve Eagle

An unissued and virtually mint example of a Belgian produced Sleeve Eagle made for wear by Flemish SS Volunteers.
Although sometimes referred to as having been made by the Reitz factory in Belgian there is a school of thought to suggest they were more likely to have been produced by the factory La Nommette who were in Aalst in Belgium.
Forum discussed to total approval the eagle has a wingspan of about 80mm and is formed in silver grey machine BeVo weave thread on a black rayon backing and would have been worn on the left sleeve above the Belgian Lion Shield.
