DESCRIPTION

From a foot away, this set looks 100% original.  Both the city box and the poll top are precision manufactured with painstaking attention to detail.  Here are the particulars:

The box was modeled from the Mahrich Ostrau box, an original, which was studied to learn construciton techniques, materials, and the finish of originals.  The interior is constructed of light-weight wood.  The exterior is constructed of sheet brass, with the NSDAP and city side actually stamped onto brass in high-relief.  The box is assembled with screws and side rings that were custom manufactured to resemble the original hardware.  Finally, the box is electroplated with a custom blend of cyanide-based plating solution to achieve the exact color of the originals.  The box is lacuquered and aged to look like it came out of the woodwork yesterday.

The poll top was cast from an original by a world-renowned sculptor, and is exactly the same size as the model (no size shrinkage).  The details are identical to the original.  It's hand-painted using custom metallic paint, and aged.  The only way you can tell it's not real is that it's made of plastic resin, not metal.   Because it's solid, however, it has virtually the same weight as an original, which is hollow metal.

While the boxes are still made, only a limited number of eagles were cast, and this is the last remaining eagle in the casting process.  The retail price for these sets was $6000.
