Polish Hat Eagles

Article about: In my opinion this particular cap eagle was made by G.J. Garratt Toronto. Very unique, hard to find.

    Is it Pre-39 or ww2 period?

    Nice piece of art Wadowicznic

    Here is something I got today. Polish sandcast brass eagle, probably some early example made for Carpathian Rilfe Brigade in Syria in 1940. Accompanied with a French Levant Army forage cap.

    Hi!
    Truly the great find!
    I do not remember seeing a French Levant Army Cap with a Polish Eagle - very rare!
    Can you please post the detailed and sharp / digital macro - pictures of the eagle - front and back and the fastening.
    I would like to compare it with the SBSK Eagles - I know to complete the identification.

    Thank You for the further pictures.
    I would say that it is SBSK Eagle. FYI - in fact, most likely it is not made in Syria.
    According to my research, this pattern was made and sold at Camp Latrum in Palestine / Israel - under British command.
    This particular pattern has a few small features that make it distinguishable.

    What is very interesting with your find - is that the Eagle comes with the hat. As far as i understand - the French stuff was replaced with British uniforms very shortly after arriving at Latrum (from Homs in Syria). It is puzzling why the owner did not exchange the hat.

    Congratulation on this acquisition!

    Thanks! Probably someone put it together for display I guess.

    I have a question regarding another one. Eagle looks like Spink & Son to me, but I do not know if it's real thing or copy. It came to me with rogatywka cap which is also a mistery to me. Some say it's British made and some say it's late 1947 Polish. Are you able to identify the eagle and the cap from the picture?

    Thank You for the post!
    I am not an expert on Polish Military ww2 hats, but i am sure you will receive appropriate, clear and knowledgeable advice from colleges on this forum, who are much more proficient in the subject.

    Regarding the Eagle - it is definitively Spin & Son made Eagle - so called "asymmetric version" (see earlier posts).
    What may be helpful is - see a type of fastening used. FYI - could be blades, omegas or tread.

    From my experience - it is generally relatively straightforward to establish if an eagle and / or a regimental badge was fixed recently or "in the period" - but, i would spare an advice here - as the risk is that it will be used by counterfeiters. I have seen over years counterfeiters - making the same mistake when it come to "assembling" an eagle with a hat and / or uniforms with badges.
    The longer it stays like that - the better for collectors.
