    Hello Sieg,

    An interesting version. I can’t say that I have previously seen one exactly like this. The construction is definitely what could be considered “officer grade”. The black paper backing is common to post-war cloth insignia produced in the UK for the Polish veteran market and made available through veteran associations and retailers such as POSK. I cannot say for certain that this patch was part of that run, but it certainly would fit right in based on the quality and details. I would feel sufficiently comfortable with this one to include in my collection.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hello Tony,

    So most likely a post war variant? If you are interested in it please make me an offer? I would love to sell it and let go into someone who could appreciate it! I purchased it with a bunch of insignia, which I have been selling off. Many thanks!

    Regards,
    Drew

    Yes, that would be my assumption based on several factors. Possibly early post war, although there's not much to go by as far reference sources. Largely observation and gut feel. I neglected to add that the hussars wing feathers are disproportionately small in comparison to the standard size, but this sort of variation is not entirely unusual. PM sent.
