    Ive been studying pictures of badges and medals closly and if im in doubt i send a picture to Professor Zdzislaw Wesolowski he always identyfies if its a fake or real.Thanks about reminding me about the law!But i can always ship it to Grandmas
    Ö on allegro i went on the communists ones and youll be suprised when you see a couple of pre war rogatywki and uniforms and most of the time no ones bidding on them cause they`ll think its a surplus communist times uniform
    Letís just say always try to get more than one opinion. Even Professorís are known to make mistakes. Iíll limit comments to that.

    Re supposed pre-war rogatywki mixed in with the post war commie stuff on Allegro, more often than not youíll find post war rogatywki mixed in with the pre-war items. Itís not a stretch to suggest that 95% of the rogatywka caps being offered as pre-war are in fact early post war. So be very careful before shelling out big bucks.

    Lastly, re your Grandmother, the cops over there donít play favourites. A friendís mother was arrested for sending out a hat eagle badge. They are very serious about the exportation of ďcultural treasuresĒ. You are forwarned!

    Regards,

    I cant argue with you, you win

    Sorry i worded it wrong i would pay for the item here from Canada but it would be sent to my Grandmothers.
    Thank you so much about reminding me about the rule my Aunt wants to send me a pre-war rogatywka that she bought for me and getting in lost would be a crisis for me :S

    Itís common practice to circumvent the export laws by taking advantage of the Ďopen borderí EU situation where you can sail through without being stopped by border officials. Sellers based in Poland such as ďplmilitaryĒ drive out of the country and mail their items abroad from there. In his case he drives across the border to Slovakia. He plainly states this in his ebay auctions.

    So despite the strict rules forbidding export of these things, there is this huge loophole that is being exploited. It all seems rather foolish.

    Please post some pics of your rogatywka if you have them, or when it arrives.

    He certainly has some quite varied and "unusual" views towards the variety and variations of the Parachute badge .. considering there were only two legitimate manufacturers !
    .. But there again, I'm not a professor !

    Hey Gary,

    As you and any other serious collectors of Polish militaria over the past decade or two know, those ďvaried and unusual viewsĒ are not strictly limited to the 1SBS para badges! But who am I to speak? I ainít no professor either. Say no more . . .

    Regards,
    Tony

    It super to see that you are preparing such a tribute to your grandfather and father! It speaks very highly of you to preserve the memory of your grandfatherís service in WW2. I, and most other participants on this thread Iím sure, would very much like to hear more about your grandfather. I can see that he served in the 2nd Warsaw Armoured Division. My father did as well.
    Tony,

    Thank you for your kind words, however I disagree. My actions say nothing more about me than my attempt to preserve the memory of what my grandfather accomplished. I'm doing nothing more than placing them in a handsome box. He earned, lived and died for them. It says so much more for him, since he's lived the words engraved at one of his battlegrounds: "MY ZOLNIERZE POLSCY ODDALISMY-BOGU DUCHA, ZIEMI WLOSKIEJ CIALO, A SERCA, POLSCE"

    And I thank you for your tips on how to mount them.

    Hi again Dave,

    Of course, I understand what you mean. But from my perspective you do deserve credit for taking the time and effort to assemble a set of decorations and mementoes to preserve the memory of your grandfatherís service, and equally so as this is a gift for your father. A very considerate gesture on your part.

    Again, please keep us posted on how this project comes along.

    Cheers,
    Tony
