    Pictures of front, and the spinner. Pictures taken with phone, so quality is poor.

    And the ugly sticking out wires on #1 would tear up Uniform if one put that Cross on.

    Tomasz,

    there is also a third variant (?) - The Rokitna Cross #56 in excellent Stela's book "POLSKIE ODZNAKI HONOROWE I PAMIATKOWE"
    page 16, four wires are bent inwards!

    Another difference is in placing of a number (No):
    #1 Cross has number after the names.
    #56 Cross has number between the names.
    Hope it helps.

    Best regards,
    Jurek

    Jurek,

    As I stated before, I have only seen one genuine Rokitna Cross.

    I do not have the Stela book, but if the wires are not finished as in the picture I shown, then I have a problem with it also. The Number goes after the names.

    This was a limited run of Crosses, to this day for Polish Cavalry collectors this is the Holy Grail.

    Hi Guys,

    my first small addition to this thread: badge of Szkoła Podoficerów Piechoty dla Małoletnich Nr 2 in Grudziądz (Infantry N.C.O. School for Teenagers No 2).

    Badge looks to be form the period, but I am not sure, if this screwdisc has originally belonged to it.

    regards
    Tomasz

    Hi Tom,

    Re your question about the authenticity of the junior school badge, Grabski is noted in the W. Mos reference as a maker of the 2nd and 3rd School badges. I don’t have any good images of the badges though and have never owned one of these. Best I can offer is that I don’t see any immediate problems with yours, and I also don’t think these are a hot commodity for the copiers to want to reproduce. So a cautious thumbs up.

    Good looking Lithuanian-White Russian Front badge. The spinner might be a replacement though - ??

    Thanks for sharing your badges.

    Cheers,
    Tony
