    Default Polish Eagles WWI and WWII

    Hello,

    I was hoping to ask the opinions of the experts regarding the eagles in the photo below. There are about 40 different eagles from both WWI and WWII in this collection that I have the opportunity to purchase, but I'm not sure what would be a good price to offer. I was at a gun show this morning and one of the dealer had this set for sale. The eagles look pretty good to me on the surface, but I'm not an expert on these items and was hoping some of you can shed some light for me. This is the only photo I was able to take of the collection, so it may be a bit difficult to authenticate. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you!!

    Hi Tom,

    I would contact the dealer and ask for more pictures. It looks like a nice collection but I would be more cautious with some of the more scarcer variants of eagles.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread but maybe this can be our official Legions/IIRP eagle thread?

    Here's a scam going on right now, taking pre-war eagles and stamping dates/regimental numbers on them to increase the value. From • Zaloguj (you need to register to be able to see)

    Hi Tom,

    The collection looks nice. I think you might have a few AK produced eagles in the group as well. Many look like good examples but we would also need to see the backs. The regimental eagles in the bottom row and the "gołąbkami" eagles are commonly faked and sold on allegro.

    Hi Tom, 1, 4, 12, 13, 17, 19 are copy/fantasy/fake. The rest look good. Emil correctly picked that there's both pre-war and WW2 Resistance made eagles in the lot. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

    Regards,
    Tony
