    You’ve correctly identified the Orlęta (Young Eagles) badge, with its original spinner. That’s a very nice 10 year Commemorative Silesian Provincial Police badge. Genuine and in super condition. Lastly is the 32nd Infantry Regiment, unfortunately a copy. Two out of three ain’t bad! Nice little haul from an antiques fair – congrats

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Just found this:

    Estonian Artillery Badge | eMedals

    The guy wrote it is Estonian but it Polish, 21st Art Regt - 21 Pulk Artylerii Lekkiej, the regt was part of the 21 Dywizja Gorska hence the swastika.

    Hi cichociemny, yes it looks like a Polish badge snuck its way into the Estonian section. This is an old post war copy. It would be a steal for the asking price if genuine. Original pre-war enameled (officer grade) badges for this regiment were always struck in silver.

    Beautiful badge Jaxmon

    Do you know who the maker of this badge was?

    Agreed, a very nice example, and one of the many beautiful pre-war designs. This one is a variant without the white enameling in the center disc. Compare to the one below.

    These badges were made by Jan Knedler.
