    Here is an almost identical example on ebay. Link provided by the ever helpful Tony Z. If you look closely the Polish shield, top left, almost looks like it has been machine made separately and then applied. Anyway the construction methods on both seem very similar. One aged and one not.
    What do you think?

    Hi James, here are the promised pics of genuine examples of this rarely seen cloth insignia, one that sold two or three years ago, and an image taken from the book "Symbole wojskowe Polskich Sił Zbrojnych na Zachodzie 1939-1946 (Jerzy Murgrabia).

    Regards,
    Tony

    Many thanks Tony - perfect illustration of the difference between a good one and a bad one. I didn't realise that they were so rare

    You're most welcome James. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Here's another copy on the market, this one a little bit more faithful to the original.

    Regards,

    Hi Tony

    Not the bearer of bad news at all. A great learning experience. I notice the eagle on the one you just posted doesn't have a crown - a bit of a give away but I'm sure some will be fooled.

    Thanks for all of your help

    Another one that I think may be nearer the real thing than most others seen out there. Are we getting warm?

    Hi James, yes that one certainly looks much closer to the example I posted earlier, which was claimed to be a genuine example.

    Cheers,
    Tony
