I'd be very careful... The way that Gryphon is connected to the cross is unusual... I suggest close physical examination
Thanks for reply. I haven't a possible keep it in my hand.
Have anyone an original badge 18th Regiment of Uhlans and can show here?
Check Pre-War Badge thread, post #207. Badge in that post was made by Jan Knedler, although with different spinner.
According to Sawicki/Wielechowski - "Odznaki Wojska Polskiego 1918 - 1945" book, all badge's features indicate, it is Knedler's product. It is two part construction with 3 studded joint, plus light stamp-profiling and the shape of digits. Gontarczyk's soldier version is one-part construction where Gryphon is soldered to the cross. Unless, of course, authors are wrong.
All thoughts and opinions expressed are those of my own and should not be mistaken for medical and/or legal advice.

I agree with you Tony. I checked Wielecki/Sawicki book to confirm your opinion. Hence, we have Gontarczyk's badges
