    Default Confirmation needed on eagle and shield.

    Hello all and wishing you a great 2011.
    Now I need help in confirming that the two items in the links are originals.
    The first confirmation and informations needed is for an eagle, I believe an wz19 interwar pattern (see A.J.Zawadski's great display of 07/21/09).
    The second iten that needs confirmation is a shield said to be for women's auxiliary units (???) Again I refer to A.J.Zawadski post of 11/02/09 and of 11/03/09. (I'm sorry I can't read polish).
    I am offered these two items and I would like to know, if originals, what is an honest dollars value I should be offering.

    Hi Joe,

    The eagle is not genuine. This is a fantasy pattern. Similar to the pre-WW2 wz.19, these are often mistaken as being genuine.

    The " women's auxiliary units (???) " may be OK. There are fine vertical lines on the shield background that are not readily visible in the picture you posted. Check for them.

    I have never before seen the ‘slider’ type of fastening method employed on these. These badges typically sell for under $50. And no surprise, they are now being reproduced.

    Posted below is a side by side reverse view comparison to a genuine example. There are some slight differences in the permiter details, but overall it seems to stack up well.

    Regards,
    Tony
