Polish Hat Eagles

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

    First off, Matthew welcome aboard! Thank you for posting your PAF bullion eagles. Beautiful! We look forward to your further contributions to the forum.

    . . . Again – as per my post above - I would like to learn more about the “omegas – versions” Any Thoughts?
    My only thought is that information on these eagles (supposedly made by Spink although unconfirmed) is virtually non-existent. As mentioned in prior discussions elsewhere on the forum, Spink data was lost during the war due to a bombing raid and then to make matters worse there were further losses of information during the changes of ownership of the Spink company in the post war years. Sorry to say, but don’t hold your breath Artur!

    Regards,

    Can one of You post some more pictures, please?
    Any info on this variant?

    Artur, according Zawistowski 1939-45 (#77, page 51) this is an APW - Polish Army in the (Middle) East variant. Scracely seen version.

    Here's one to ponder:

    Logical points that remain true for the most part. But pause for a moment to consider the following pre-WW2 122nd Fighter Squadron set. This badge and matching document are FAKE. Made in Poland in a very limited quantity by evidently very skilled counterfeiters. On initial glance these could easily fool even advanced collectors. I have seen the badge alone listed on Allegro a couple of years ago, and suspect it was from this batch. As expected, the price fetched was high. SCARY!

    Regards,

    I have read an interesting article in one of Polish portals about manufacturing badges of 122 squadron. It appears, that some smart guys are using badge "Za ofiarna prace" to make unbelieveable copys. Here is one for example:

    Yep, they are making HQ copies of the 122 Eskadra, using this badge- the silver markings are the same as on genuine badge.....
