    Hi Matthew, I am not keen on this one either. The quality is not up to pre-WW2 standards. Note the poor "12" in the date and the sloppy nails in the shield frame along with other details. The textured background in the enameled area of the shield is very weak as well. Also, the construction differs from badges held up as genuine in the Sawicki/Wielechowski reference.

    Regards,
    Tony

    You're most welcome Matthew. This is one of the rarer pre-WW2 infantry regiment badges, seldom seen on the market.

    Cheers,
    Tony
