Larger scale gold smuggling by 2PolCorps according to Harvey Sarner in his book Anders and the Soldiers of the Second Polish Corps was pretty wide-spread even at the highest levels of command in the Corps.

This is not the II Corps cap badge but I think you may like to see it. This is Miłkowski's interwar cap badge wz.19 from the late 30s. Stamped white metal silver plated. A cap badge hard to find. Miłkowski's production was relatively small compared to Skarnik&Fiszbein, Guzpol or Grabski to name just a few.
On Sarner. Gold smuggling was one story and the other one was investing in gold. Egyptian gold was low carat and pretty cheap. It was just was a perfect investment for the future. Poles also made uniform buttons from Egyptian gold
from a recent post, gold eagle with copper screw post and spinner. as can be observed, the spinner is manufacturer marked? the area had to be cleaned with a toothbrush and soapy water as it was heavily ingrained with dirt etc., barely legible.

By the way, the best way to remove dirt from a cap badge is to wash it with methylated spirit, let it dry, wash again and remove dirt with a cotton pad. Dirt is fat so methylated spirit helps remove it.
perhaps a better image. thanks for info. you learn something every day !
How many of them do you have ?! Maybe you are a millionaire but you don't know it yet. Just kidding
Egyptian gold was 14/18 carat gold and the color is red or purple rather than orange. The color of 24 carat gold is orange, the mix of red and yellow.
