    Default Help Identifying Medal, possibly Pre -WWI

    Hello all!

    I have a Polish war medal that has been passed down through my family for a few generations. My grandfather said it was his from father's family in Poland (Lachowski and Sobieski Estate). I can only date this back to 1930 from a picture of my grandfather holding it. The medal is in rough shape, so I thought I'd take a shot and see if anyone here knew about it!

    Simply, It could be patriotic jewellery, popular in pre-WWII period

    Unusual is that the crown is missing on the eagle. I'm not sure it was common to do such a thing unless it is not based on the Polish eagle and just a eagle from a certain town or county in Poland.

    There were many badges with uncrowned eagle. For example some NKN badges.
