    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.

    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

    Hi
    Thank You.

    Hussars' Eagle is not seen often - i do not remember seeing one on the market. It would be good to see some comparables (pictures etc)
    I think there is a book "ostatni polscy huzarzy", but i do not have it. I guess it features some pictures.

    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

    . . . I think there is a book "ostatni polscy huzarzy", but i do not have it. I guess it features some pictures.
    I have the book, and the cover is very tantalizing and holds much promise, but alas there are no detailed insignia pictures contained inside. Otherwise it is a very detailed and comprehensive book that thoroughly covers all aspects of this Polish 2nd Corps unit.

    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.

    Regards,
    Tony
