Hello War Relics Forum! As you can see I'm new here, and I'd like to introduce myself. The reason that I joined is because I have recently come across three Polish submarine badges, and I would like to know more about them, as well as their value.
I have only found one website with information on them.
This is the photograph from the website.
I have all three pictured there, and mine are in the same condition."Poland established a submarine service in 1929. The date the submarine badge was issued is
unknown. During communist rule, there were three badges: Commanding Officer
(gold plated), officer (silver/pewter), and seamen (copper/bronze). "
On the reverse side of the badge, the back of the lapel/pin reads "Elektro Poznan."
That's the only information that I have on them. I contacted Polishmilitaria@aol.com, and they offered me $25, and informed me that they had no information on them. Of course I declined their offer.
I'm speculating that these are fairly rare, as I have never seen any before. I've seen quite a lot of Polish militaria, although I do not collect it. Only SS/ Third Reich militaria gets my juices flowing.
If any of you have some information on the value, origin, type, etc. of these please let me know.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
