    Hi Steve, it is the badge of the 14th Jazłowiecki Lancers Regiment (14 Pułk Ułanów Jazłowieckich). It appears to be a genuine enlisted ranks pre-war badge. Your friend can run that unit name through Google and get plenty of information. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Cheers, Tony

    Tony, thanks for your reply. That's good news, so as it's a genuine pre war badge which I understand is pretty rare, could you give an indication of it's value so I can also tell him that? thanks again. Steve

    Hi again Steve, the real value to your friend should be the connection to his family history. No doubt he is aware of that. But as far as market value goes, this badge being an enlisted ranks version and somewhat worn, although to a cavalry regiment which are generally more valuable, I'll throw a dart and say it would fetch somewhere between US$300-500. I am open to the corrections of anyone with a better feel for current market prices.

    Cheers, Tony

    Thanks again for that Tony. Yes it's a family item as such but I don't think the granddad was Polish. The badge has been found within the last couple of weeks, whilst clearing the house as he's sadly died. Who knows what else might turn up, the guy has 2. other brothers and one of them has some medals but I don't know just what they are yet.

    The house and possessions, are subject to probate at the moment so things might end up been sold. Cheers
