    IMO it's a fake of "odznaka dywizjonu huzarów śmierci". On polish auctions this is a popular copy. Original badge is very, very rare.

    You must looking for Huzarzy Smierci or Polish Death Hussar Divisions. There are not the same Hussars like these from 16th century.
    It's a polish division of cavalry create in 1920 or 1919 (Polish-Soviet war)

    I'm not expert of this subject - that's a basic information.
