Polish Hat Eagles

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

    Yes, there were many Polish soldiers in France 1940, but you seem to forget one crucial aspect. The questions at hand isn't only how many troops there were or number of badges/eagles made but how many survived the entire war. The next variable is how many items got lost after the war and last but not least, the number of collectors within a certain field . . .
    And the third important variable: How many of the different eagle types produced were this particular type? The answer may never be known, but this product was competing against those eagles made by Alavoine and others (pictured below)

    Is the consensus that $455 was too much to pay for this eagle?
    Maybe not for the person who freely placed the winning bid! It appears that we have a new high water mark for this variant. And it remains the only one like it I have ever seen listed for sale on the internet. A rare bird.

    Prices climb. That's bad news when you want to buy, but good news when you want to sell. There are some items on which I am certain I would spend more than others might consider prudent, just as there are some items I would not empty pocket change for. It's all relative, and very subjective.

    Itís also good news when one has been nagged with second thoughts about what was given away in trade to obtain one of these eagles, as was the case for me. I donít feel quite so haunted anymore.

    Hey Gary !

    Sure !! I just bought a new camera and need to test it out ! I do have some old images of some of my eagle somewhere on the hard drive. Most of my "birds" were picked up many years ago.
