Thanks again to Wilhelm !  

Wilhelm P.B.R. Saris (Netherlands); eagle removed by the 708th Railway Grand Division, courtesy Paul Ayerst from Canada. Great presentation of a German Reichsbahn-eagle captured by the 708th Railway Grand Division at Hirson in France, September 3rd, 1944, mounted on a nice wooden plaque.

The eagle is painted over in silver. In German, during the Third Reich, such an eagle was phrased as Hoheitszeichen (national emblem).
