The eagle is the wrong colour just like all repo's The originals "glowed in the dark" (phosphorescent). There were two problems, 1 they became target practice in occupied territories and 2 they were bad for your health, (gamma rays). The correct colour is a pale ivory/cream, played around with both of my gorget's to get the colour correct. Used to paint my fishing floats with glow in the dark many years ago. Contact Dave Page Moderator for more details.

could well be an original im not an expert, only going on what i have been told,
you need to contact Dave Page, he runs the feldgendarmerie section on this forum for more details, also head of The Living History Assc. He can also advise you on other items you might want. No police cuff titles, lolly pop stick yes, some luftwaffe feldgendarmerie had Orange shoulder boards, but not all. Dont use Osprey for reference, when i was researching GFP Luftwaffe the book info was wrong, got a German (in Deutsche) book on Luftwaffe, which gave the correct info.
good luck,
graham
