    Very nice items, Jaxmon!

    37th Leczycki Infantry Regiment Officer's Badge

    I saw this in a dealer's case at a show a few weeks ago, and I was put off by the enamel damage. Then I turned it over and discovered that it was the very rare N. J. Szurmak version. Any others I have seen have always been by Grabski.

    Badge looks good I think the spinner is not a part of this badge. I do not agree it was ever made by Szurmak. Badges of 37 PP were made by Br. Grabski or P. Bobkowicz.

    As far as I know, Gontarczyk was involved mostly in regimental badges. Northern Cross, I know, was made by Krakow's engravers: Zajac or Trebacz, but commmemorative badges could have been made by anyone.
    I think what you try to say is, your badge lacks characterictics of profile-stamping or die-stracking. Let us see your badge and we can share our opinions.

    Actually, the 37 P.P. Szurmak disk is correct. This version is known to Polish collectors, but it is very seldom seen, so, it is not surprising that this version is not pictured in the Sawicki reference book. Close examination of the badge will show one that this version differs from the Grabski and Bobkowicz types.

    Not a good idea to take photos in a tanning booth, Emil.
