    Look like Polish regimental badges. I'll try to find some exempale in a book.

    These appear to be ‘commemorative issue’ pre-independence Legion era hat eagles. I’d need to check my references for more info though, which are not with me at the moment. Stay tuned . . .

    Just had a brief look in Gawlowski's book on Eagles (1913 - 1920) ..

    If I'm reading it right, the "5" is the commemorative for the 5th Infantry - Battle of Krakow .. 1916

    And the "1" is the commemorative for the 1st Infantry - Battle of Wiedniu - 1916. (Battle of Vienna)

    Although both Amazon shields show some slight differences in style to the ones in the book.

    Helllo,
    A friend of mine, who collects the polish eagles, indicated me they were copies...
    I know nothing about these items. But if my friend says it, I am afraid that I can believe him...

    Hi Didier,

    Your English is perfectly understandable. No problems.

    A quick look through my references does not include this type among genuine known examples. Some pictures taken from „Polskie orły do czapek w latach 1917–1919” by Tomasz Zawistowski showing genuine examples of such badges.

    In the early pre-independence Legion era, prior to the widespread introduction of regimental badges and before standardization of uniform regulations, eagle badges did serve to identify the regiment / unit of service. Some were even worn on the uniform tunic, as pictured below (again, taken from the Zawistowski reference)
