Polish Hat Eagles

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

    I ´ve seen that one before here.
    Silly me - I forgot that I had posted that badge here previously!
    It's true - things do start falling apart once over 40 . . .

    How about a possible "field / workshop made" Lead eagle of the pre-39 variety ...

    The metal is very soft and pliable ... more than likely a lead/solder base !

    Screw fixing to back is crudley soldered on .. and of course the standard "meccano" nuts and washers !

    .. However .. do note the quality of the cast .... it has picked up the feather details on the wings !

    Can somebody help with the identification? This is my recent acquisition.
    Unfortunately I still do not have a Zawistowski’s book here in London.
    The material is very hard to bend. I have a number of eagles in my collection but this is the first of this type.
    Perhaps made in Germany?

    I would not try to bend this badge, as it looks to be a cast brass variant.
    This is typical of quite a few types associated with the 2nd Corp in the Middle East / Palestine.

    Gary is right. This is typical Palestine made eagle. They are almost always casted with typical nut and shim. I like them because every one is different.

    Hi Wadowicznic,

    I second that - Gary is correct. It’s one of the many Polish Army in the East (Armia Polska na Wschodzie) variants made in the Middle East c. 1942/43. However, this is not cast but rather stamped from a brass sheet. Measures 54 x 35mm.

    Here’s mine with original fastening parts:
