    Default Polish signals badge, authentic?

    Found this badge in a box of old buttons in my house this morning- no idea where it came from. Having looked it up I see its a Polish signals badge. Can anyone tell me more about it? is it genuine? when does it date from and on what was it worn? Also, whats its value? Thanks, Douglas

    Hi Doug, you're correct, it's a Signals badge, and appears to be a genuine WW2 issue. These were produced in the UK, Italy, and also the Middle East. My understanding is the twin fastening blade variety is British made, likely by Collins, London, with this being an unmarked version. These were worn on the left breast pocket of the uniform tunic (see picture below). As far as value, in today's market somewhere between $100 - $150, give or take.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Agree with Tony ...
    I've always been led to believe the two pronged type were British made.

    Thanks for the very helpful responses. I am very pleased to find that I have such an interesting badge, especially since I didn't even know I had it!
