Well researched topic – Polish WW2 Pilot’s Badge by Gaunt & Sons Ltd London – true classic of the Polish Collection
Browsing the recent offers / finished auctions on the Ebay - I have just noticed an interesting picture.
Please notice the finishing of the ‘wieszaczek” at the end of the chain of this particular badge – it is sharp / pointy (please see the picture with the red circle).
My experience with Gaunt’s Wings (I know this badge from various collections / pictures and I have one too) is that the finishing of the “wieszaczek” is not sharp (please see the pictures to exemplify the point).
I am wondering what the experience of You Fellows is?
This may just be an alteration with no significance at all, or could be a feature that the manufacturer applied to a small issue (most likely randomly).
Perhaps in addition to the versions a) “with crack” and b) without – both discussed on the forum before – we may actually add one more – this would be interesting.
