    Hi Igor,

    It's a modern copy. I believe this maker (Zygmunt Olszewszki) still runs a production operation is Warsaw.

    Hi!

    One unknown badge. Could it be a Polish pre-war badge?

    Hi LoCo

    The first time I am seeing this badge. It’s not likely Polish by virtue of the use of the “V”, a letter not found in the modern Polish alphabet. The use of acronyms on badges would always represent Polish language words.

    The “V” is found on the “Polonia Restitvta”, the Latin language equivalent for "Poland Restored" spelled out its entirety on the decoration.

    Regards,
    Tony

    The font style and the "K" in particular to me looks suggestive of Vienna Secession influence so end of 19th century early 20th century...so maybe Austrian or Germanic. Just my impression nothing concrete.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    So in all some very nice badges, do all the ones that made it into this thread represent them all or are there still some "missing" from here? To rephrase the question, how many different badges would one have to acquire to complete the collection? Or is that an answer lost to history?
