    Collar insignia of the Podhale Rifles Regiment, until 1939. Very nice, but I think it is just a copy.
    No big loss if it is, it was free with some German tinnies, we didn't know what it was.

    Wow, lots of detail in that badge and a wonderful design! Looks to be in great condition too. Too bad about the "opening" cost, even if it is a value, it's out of reach to most.

    Certainly out of reach for me! It'll be interesting to see if it sells. Stay tuned . . .

    Hi Tony,

    It is indeed one of the finest badges produced pre - 1939, I caught the auction half way through, there were quite a number of lots unsold including the above.

    Thanks for posting

    Best wishes

    Here is my Gwiazda Slaska (Sileasian Star). A larger piece (90mm x 90mm), four-piece construction with clasp suspension. Makers of Silesian stars included J. Walenta of Krakow and Galmet-Sosnowiec among others. Typically, these stars are seen with a screw-back suspension. Does anyone have information about the maker of this variant with rear clasp suspension?

    Wonderful star Patryk I can't recall ever encountering that type of clasp. And the coinstruction is very unusual and interesting.

    Posted below is a more conventional full size version of this star, is rare storage case.

    Regards,
    Tony
