    Hi Daniel, and welcome to the forum. This is the badge of the “Obrońcom Kresów Wschodnich” – Defenders of the Eastern Borderlands. There were two or more versions of this badge. It is a rarely seen badge. I’d like to see a picture with the spinner removed. Do you now if the case is also marked ‘J.Chylinski’ on the inside lining?

    Here’s one that is held up as a genuine example, currently available for about $2700USD. This version is not serial numbered, although the Sawicki reference (page 615) does picture a very similar looking serial numbered example. The spinner is not original.

    Note the differences between this one and yours - the crispness of the lettering, crossed swords, figures in the center disc.

    Sorry I cannot offer you much more as far as a yea or nay on this one.

    Regards.
    Tony

    Hi Daniel, you’re most welcome, although I don’t think I was of much help as far as determining the authenticity of this one. This is a rarely seen badge, and I just don’t know enough about it. But based on a direct side by side comparison of the obverse there’s sufficient reason to be cautious about the one you posted.

    Regards,
    Tony
