    Re: recognize this crest?

    Ornate two-headed eagle - symbol of secular and ecclesiastical authority in some religions.

    Also a Russian symbol, a medievil symbol, the flag of albania, and an artistic symbol - all depending on the elements of design.

    Your with the eagle, crown and heart... I have no idea.

    Still looking - But I would bet a paycheck that it's simply a generic heraldry symbol... and btw, it's very cool!

    Almost looks like Arabic writing above the eagles.

    A fairly similar design appears on the reverse of a Holy Roman Empire medal struck in Frankfurt, Germany in 1711 for the coronation of Charles VI. Scroll about 1/3 down at:

    Montana Jim wasn't much help on this one; he must not have personal knowledge of the object.
