    Thanks for your comments Jacek. No need at all to apologize. Your knowledgeable input is always worth waiting for.

    I agree with all of your points, although as far as the quality it's difficult for me to judge from this one rather weak photo.

    • none of these makers would be interested in producing of another variant because of expensive die and different two-part construction
    A valid point, although revised badge designs from the same maker are of course known. And by the same token one wonders why someone would go to all the effort and expense to produce such a fantasy item in what appears to have been be a very small quantity. As always, plenty of questions!

    Best,

    Best wishes for a happy New Year !!!

    Today is perfect occasion to enjoy the eye with our collections and to summarize the past year.
    I have to admit that it was crazy year for me and very busy time but fortunately as a whole it was very positive year also in collector’s meaning.

    I would like to share with you some samples of my trophies from 2014. Here an example of the item from the group of the pre-war badges:

    More than once over the years I've heard that one needs to exercise particular caution with the Krakow badges. It is, shall we say, a known hotbed of creative entrepreneurial activity in the area of collectible military artifacts.

    Here's and example of the 2nd Air Force Regiment from this maker that sold several years ago for a hefty sum.

    "One of these things is not like the others, One of these things just doesn't belong, Can you tell which thing is not like the others. By the time I finish my song?" . . . ahh those childhood memories of Sesame Street, but I digress. Side by side comparisons are always helpful in picking out subtle and not-so-subtle differences. One can then decide whether to attribute these differences to period production variations, or other more nefarious reasons:
