    Default Found amongst WW2 uniform insignia, what are these?

    Posting this question on behalf of a friend:

    These two small spring devices were found amongst various rank insignia and badges that belonged to a WW2 Polish officer. The likely date back to the period of this officerís service, but may have no actual military connection. For relative scale they are pictured up against a hat eagle badge that they were found with.

    Can anyone identify what they are?

    Many thanks,
    Tony

    My wild guess would be hinge springs for a medal storage box/case to keep the lid flipped open for presentation perhaps? Maybe if someone in the forum has a medal storage box/case they might compare theirs to your picture.

    Thanks for your input Chris. Iíve never seen nor heard a medal storage / display box with spring tensioned lid, but thereís a first time for everything. If such a beast exists I hope to see pics posted here (although I wonít hold my breath . . . )

    Cheers,
    T.

    No worries Tony. In terms storage box size I should have mentioned it would only be big enough to fit in your had.
