  • Can you Help Please ?

    Hello Everyone,

    I have joined this forum hoping that someone can help me...I live in Australia and have been left this stunning antique headdress from a family member.

    Would you be so kind as to help me work out if it is genuine or not

    The headdress is fully lined with the soft purple satin material that has stamped on it - "Somerset Hunt Cap" ....I found this is an old English company....which I am hoping they can help me with the background of it story.

    I was told they are genuine Bald Eagle Feathers, which I do know they are illegal in your country..... this is an antique headpiece made in the early 1950's or before....I am trying to get its story if I can.....

    Would you all be so kind as to help me and try to view the feathers for me and confirm the authenticity of the Bald Eagle.

    I know turkey feathers well and they don't look like them - but in those days I don't know.

    I am looking at selling this piece if I can to return it to its Native Land....but first of all I want to be 100% that it is "fully genuine"
    I sincerely would appreciate all the help I can get.

    Thank you in advance.

    I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
    It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

      Trust WD. He knows his eagle feathers. Those aren't even particularly good replicas.

                May be we can do a barter, grey hairs against non gray hairs?

                And I strongly support WD that you are not going bald.

                  Laws and Eagle Feathers
                  by Niigig
                  I learned a lot recently about eagle feathers, and I thought, "Hey, maybe someone else will wonder like I did, why not write it down, just in case?" So here it is.

                  I have just recently returned from a dance in south Texas. I was asked to help out as their AD this year. I was very glad to help out in any way I could. I would do it again if asked.
