A seller I know found some WW2 items when clearing out the house of his deceased Uncle and we have been in discussions regarding some of his finds.
This one badge he is quite excited about and thinks it is German but I have to disagree. The screwback indicates Polish origin to me but this is nothing I have ever seen before. Following the Polish clue i've discovered the badge is supposed to be a Hussars Deaths Head Division Badge.
But is it original or a cheap copy?
To my eyes the rough casting around the swords grips and the file marks on the reverse indicate a copy but perhaps this is correct for the period and the manufacturer?
Any comments will be much appreciated.
