    Imo, I think the original design with sixteen 3,000 pounds each zinc eagles made in Germany crowning the four outer pavilions made for something unique in American design. Can't find anything regarding removal of eagles in terms of the why or dates. Seeing these old photos and what is left looks a bit flat or deflated to me.
