This Naval Breast Eagle is the type of insignia that would have been worn with the naval summer white tunic. It is the type of insignia with pin on the reverse, so that it could be taken off while the item was washed.
The eagle has very little of the original gilding left on the surfaces; actually, most of the bird has turned black with age. There are small specks of gilding in the recesses of the wings, as well as around the wreath and swastika. The reverse of the eagle has a brass pin.
