    the buttons with the three crowns i believe are Swedish WW2 uniform buttons.
    as you suspect, the eagle device with the curved base is a WW2 polish hat device.
    now, i'm no expert, but the buttons with the eagles on them i think are also polish, however were these WW2 i believe the eagles would have crowns. as they do not, i suspect they are post WW2 from the years of soviet occupation.
    the set of buttons with eagles WITH crowns i think are WW2 era polish buttons from before the soviet occupation.

    someone with greater expertise will come along i am sure and either confirm or correct or expand on this.

    The skull badge might be a German Freikorps badge but I'm not sure. Try posting it the German Imperial forum.

    The badge is of Polish origin, called the Commemorative Badge of the Góra Straceń (the Mountain of Execution) Sector. It was one of the badges issued for the defense of the city of Lwow in 1918, for defenders of an area where a particularly bloody battle took place. It is a very widely faked badge, and unfortunately this one looks like it falls into that category.

    The rank star is post war Polish. The wz.19 hat eagle looks OK.
