Polish Hat Eagles

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

    Good day folks, What do you think of this PAF eagle? It seems to have the correct characteristics of a War time British made eagle but the neck looks over sinuous. Is it a copy?

    Many thanks

    James,
    This You for the post!.
    Eagle is original. This variant of PAF Eagle is quite rare. However, from my research - i "have concluded" that there could have been 2 versions: a) 1st one and b) 2nd one.

    The 1st version - can be characterised as "very sharp" - Eagle is stuck with a lot details clearly visible (especially the crown), material is different and Eagle is covered in a kind of old silver varnish. Fastening - English omegas. The best picture of it can actually be found - on the envelope(s) attached below. It is super rare variant - i have seen it 2 times in years and as far as know it cannot even been found at Sikorski's.

    The 2nd version - is the one, you posted - it is rare one, but seen from time to time. I think it could have been made after the war. Having said that, i have not yet found a conclusive picture etc.

    Fellows,
    I am again very glad - to be able to share with you - what i believe the super relevant find (in fact - i think one of my best!).

    While browsing Sikorskis's archives recently - i have come across the document that seems to provide very important explanation / information re super rare French PAF Eagle(s).

    Language is not 100% explicit - re actual deign of Eagles - but formulates clearly rules / guidelines that subsequently led to design of 2 variants - larger and smaller - with dimensions as prescribed.

    In addition, seems like smaller was contemplated to common ranks and NCOs and larger for officers.
    Date - February 1940

    Please provide translation if you can - as my French is very poor!
