Lets see your Polish Militaria Display!

Article about: Beautiful displays, you have just raised the level of display quality. For me it is going back to make maybe new display. I love your 2KW, and VM.

    Hello Mike and thanks for your contribution. The little write up providing some of Poland's WW2 history is super!

    Cheers,

    Thanks A.J.

    Out of curiosity, any idea of the current market value for the Poland shoulder tabs? I have looked for identical examples but have been unable to find any. The two lower ones are the bullion type.

    Mike,

    A nice collection any chance of seeing the reverse of the monte cassino crosses and the cross of valour.

    Best wishes

    I have posted pictures of the crosses on the thread about them at: http://warrelics.eu/forum/polish-arm...al-fake-16036/


    Here are a couple photos of the cross of valor for you.

    Hey Mike,
    Try to upload the photos directly to the site.

    As for the cross, I think yours is a Exile cross with the wrong ribbon.

    Oops I don't know what happened with the photo posting. That's an interesting idea about the ribbon. It might explain why it was sewn together on top.

    Why would it be a wrong ribbon if it was a replacement for a pre-1939 award ?

    Hi Mike, Difficult to answer as there are a lot of variables to consider such as condition, single or pair, scarcity, etc.

    A common single could be had for under $20, and a clean matching pair of officer grade bullion titles could approach $100 or more. The most valuable titles are the Air Force issue, with a matching pair easily in the $200 range.

    Also quite valuable are the non-fabric titles made in Italy for the 2nd Corps. A pair of plastic titles or metal titles can also fetch a tidy sum on today’s market.

    Regards,
    Tony

    George is correct, it is a pre-war period cross, French made. Therefore the ribbon is correct. This appears to be an early Arthus Bertrand product. Definitely a scarce variant. Nice cross!

    I just found the thread on the pre-war crosses. Very interesting read!
    After looking at some of the earlier examples, when was "1920" added to the crosses from the blank example? When were Bertrand's examples like mine produced?

    I am interested in learning more, I have a good friend that has a very large library of militaria reference books, but being 8000 miles away in Iraq doesn't help to get my hands on them.

    Mike

    - I just noticed on one website describing the differences and am wondering if mine is a "second issue" of 1920. It seems to have all the signs. a "V" for the cross in the letter A, the vertical stripes, the laurel leaves around the sword. It just said these were made by Knedler and Gontarczyk without mentioning any other firms making them.
