    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    We will be able to assist you in determining if this is authentic and what it is but unfortunately, we are not a free appraisal service.

    Hello Mark, and welcome to the WRF. As Ralph has mentioned, we're happy to comment and authenticate as far as possible from digital photographs, but you'll need to look elsewhere for a market value appraisal.

    You have a Gaunt & Son, London wartime production cap eagle, made for the Polish Armed Forces in the West. This was the smaller of the two official hat eagle sizes measuring at roughly 40mm high. These were typically applied to berets, GS and FS caps.

    Yours is complete with correct issue spinner, and judging from the condition is unissued. These were also produced with blade type fastening:

    Not particularly scarce, but desirable nonetheless.

    Hi Mark,

    It's a great start to a collection. Polish hat eagles were produced in many variations making this a fascinating and popular area of collecting. Here's the thread in the Polish corner of the forum devoted to the topic:
