Polish Hat Eagles

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

    The bottom one to the left is "mobilizacyjny" cap badge stamped in zinc alloy. Below is another AK cap badge. It's stamped in zinc too.

    Hello!

    Are you sure it is genuine? For me it looks like many hand made modern copies sold in website.

    Witam Michal,

    No, not sure at all one way or another.

    But a handmade modern copy of what badge?

    It is a large curved construction, the aluminium eagle is the size of a regular cap badge, with crude overlapping copper swords on top of what looks like an aluminium shield design?? I did wonder if the aluminium came from the side of mess tin or canteen?

    I would be thrilled to find out what badge this crude copy is based on or even if there is another copy like it?

    I bought it from a fellow WRF member who had doubts about it himself but as it was only a few dollars I decided to buy it from him. I actually like this badge because it is so crudely produced, and not as well crafted as other handmade "copies".

    Hi Michal,
    I am not so sure, but I agree there have been many recent creations from NSZ to ZOB and PoW eagles produced.
