    Someone purchased a good looking grouping at a very reasonable price. The cap eagle badge is a minty Canadian wartime Garratt product, whch is unusual to find in a 2nd Corps grouping. This eagle itself has sold for upwards of half the asking price for the entire grouping:

Very crisp detail, light contact, near extremely fine. Accompanied by two Ribbon Bars (1939-1945 Star, Africa Star and Commemorative Cross of Monte Cassino on one; Italy Star, Defence Medal and War Medal 1939-1945 on the other, 12 mm x 95 mm each); Polish Army Cap Badge (silvered metal, 35.8 mm x 54.5 mm); 2 Polish Corps Patch (silver bullion wire and embroidery on red cloth, 38.5 mm x 46.5 mm); British 8th Army Patch (silver and gold bullion wire, on white cloth field, on black cloth field, 43.5 mm x 55 mm); 2 Polish Corps Insignia Pin (silver, unmarked, 12 mm x 21.6 mm, screwback); Cross of Polish Soldier from America Insignia Pin (brozne and enamels, maker marked "W&M Co" on the reverse, 17 mm, screwback); British Empire Service League Canadian Legion Pin (bronze and enamels, maker marked "J.R.
