Description

The rarest and most desirable variant of the railroad eagles, the Bronze Rheingold Express eagle by Garthe. Only a handfull are known in collections today. Heavy piece made mainly out of copper and weighs about 5 kilo’s! These eagles are always seen with the drilled holes in the surface, even in the book (see pictures attached) they are still not sure why all these eagles have these perfectly drilled holes. It’s nicely marked Garthe on the reverse and Rg5 meaning the material composition ‘Rotguss’ composed of the elements copper, zinc, lead and sulfur, hence the weight of this item! A center piece for any collection!
