    This is my recent acquisition “Black Eagle “ and I would very much appreciate your opinions.

    We all know the Guant’s Polish Pilot’s wings.

    However, I have small dilemma that is worth clarifying – I think

    I have just noticed an interesting detail looking at my new acquisition.

    1. Look at the picture of the “Black Eagle” – the Badge appear to a “scare across” suggesting that the stamp was broken (please see the specific enlargement)
    2. Look at the picture of the “Silver Eagle” – it comes from the relatively new stock – 7-8 years ago, as You may know, it was easy in London to by the Polish Wings – the badges had been sold in the auction after Mr Sliwerski at Bonham’s (who had bought them from Pilot’s association in the 80ts)– my Silver Eagle comes form this lot.


    So my questions are the following
    - Can You please post the picture of the Polish Wings?
    - Do your Badges have the “scare”?
    - Given the fact that the Silver one is the post-war re-strike, can it be that the Black one the War-time made one?
    - Was Guant making badges during the war? Or was that only Firmin?
    - Any pictures of Firmin one?

    Friends

    I would like to propose that we open up the debate on the Polish Air Force Squadron Badges.
    Objective to learn as much as we can on the subject
    - Variations
    - Numbers produced
    - Makers
    - IDS
    - Copies
    - Build an on-line data base of pictures

    In the past there has been interesting posts on 303 badge(s) so we have done a good start!

    Unfortunately, i do not have any meaningful examples despite trying hard over the last few years.
    Sadly, i accept that i will not be successful in this field, but at least i would like top learn what is what.

    I am opening with a few pictures

    Hi
    Just very quickly to add to the discussion about the Pilot’s Badge of PAF that we had earlier on this Forum.



    We had discussed the 2 types of the Pilot’s badge
    a) with the “scare”
    b) without one – that seems to be a early post war re-strike

    There is one with “the scare” listed on the ebay at the moment.
    I have uploaded pictures for the record

    * WW2 Polish Air Forces badge - PILOT EAGLE genuine !! on eBay (end time 04-Jul-10 20:01:51 BST)

    And added picture of the one form my collection.

    Fellows,
    Looking at the Desa Results – I have noticed an exceptional badge.

    In my opinion it validates to have small debate / information gathering session about it to add to our collective PSZ knowledge.

    The Pilot’s Badge apparently made by Filski London (silver, signatures – Letter F in triangle). Unfortunately there is not picture of the back of the badge.

    Any more information about the manufacturer – Filski?
    Price achieved – 3900PLN suggests that it is an exceptional specimen!

    Hello
    Would that be fine to post pics of PAF patches in this topic? For example Poland titles or PAF rank insignia?
