This Eagle was in my wife's home, I got it out of the home before sold. This house was made in 1802, and from 1853 my wife's family lived in this house. She was told it is really old from her grandfather. It is 14" by 6" and 1lb 15oz. I have not cleaned it yet . should I ? On back is a number 19 or 61, anyone know about these Vintage Brass Eagles? I have brass candle sticks from Thailand from 1961 very heavy brass which is like this Eagle. I would think on the back would tell how old this was.

    I would not clean it - that would ruin the patina. It looks great just the way it is.

    The back is black some smoke my shot this not show the real back color. I see a lot in Ebay with numbers, not this big.
