Thanks for posting some great badges and patches
When you have scans of documents from your collection there is a thread started already for Polish Guard units:
LAB, SERV, COMP, (RAMP, GUARD) Polska Kompania Wartownicza
Look forward to seeing some more of your Polish Guards collection
I collect, therefore I am.
Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.
Courtesy of a very good friend from Poland – pictures featuring (as assumed) the Eagle of the 10th Hussars - 10 Pułk Huzarów Wołyńskich
I have to say – I have never seen /owned the WW2 made variant – it is a rarity!
I remember reading, I think, in Przeglond Kawaleri I Broni Pancnernej – that 2-3 variants existed.
Mr (R.I.P) Bialkiewicz also produced one (together with the Badge).
I had seen this Eagle a few years ago – but I was stupid not to acquire it as it “looked too blink!”
Has anyone got more pictures of other variants etc - Eagle of the 10th Hussars
What do You think about this one?
I am afraid original is stamped, not cast as this one seems to be
and the rings on the back are different
looks as if someone tried their hand at making a repro
I have almost come to the conclusion that the subject of “Spink Eagle” has been closed with a number of variants already posted and discussed.
However, this week – completely by chance I have purchased this variant.
It is – so I call “Symmetric Spink” – variant. The wings are identical in terms of the way they both link with the body – link is without the “mistake of the stamp” that is often seen.
The second difference – measurements of the shield.
We have discussed both variants before. From my personal experience – the “Symmetric one” is more difficult to come across.
What is interesting on this one – is the type of fastening – looks like, initially, there could have been 2 prongs in this sub-variant (see the remaining on the head)
I have never seen such fastening on Spink before
Continuing the search for the Eagle of the 10th Hussars
I have received this pictures form a Friend in Poland – again allegedly 10th Hussars
Any of You more pictures?
First off MateuszArsenal – wonderful collection of badges, thank you for sharing them
The eagle badge is given two brief mentions that I have found, one simply stating that the standard eagle was gold finished, and the other pictured below – translated:
13. “Gold” eagle of the 10th Hussars Regiment – version made using the casting technique.
14. Gold” eagle of the 10th Hussars Regiment – stamped version
So it appears that both a cast and a stamped version were made.
All thoughts and opinions expressed are those of my own and should not be mistaken for medical and/or legal advice.

I was fortunate to see two examples...both were stamped..(but no pics taken)
live and learn
excuse my ignorance , do these constitute the eagles in question
