    Thanks for the info. I'll explain a little better what I'm looking for. I am an American soldier who was deployed in a place with Poles and qualify with your Berril 5.56mm and they with our M4 and we qualificamos as Expert Marksmanship by the Polish Army.

    OK, so if I understand correctly you are after a modern Polish Army marksmanship badge. This forum does not focus on current Polish Armed Forces militaria, so I'm afraid that I cannot help you other than offering these two images I found on the web.

    Out of curiosity, were you not issued a badge after your marksmanship training?

    It's ok. It's silver. WG stands for Wiktor Gontarczyk. Is it numbered on reverse?

    A word of caution, the pre-war silver proof and Gontarczyk maker marks are both faked and applied to reproduction badges. This Znak Pancerny may be genuine, but Id like to see good clear pictures of the reverse showing the threaded post. For what its worth Id also like to see an unobscured picture of the spinner.

    Yes, they are but there's one thing fakes miss. A picture of the reverse will clarify.

    Fakes have laser engraved maker marks and serial numbers. The hallmark and maker marks are stamped which is good but all of the Gontarczyk's ZP badges I have seen to date were either hand or stamped numbered. Reising's badges were not numbered. The spinner is genuine but it may come from another badge which is an old trick. Judging the badge by the threaded post perhaps a late replacement. A bit puzzling badge to me.
