    Hi Steve

    I think I can offer a little information it is a Kotwica badge, a symbol of the Armii Krajowej (Polish underground/resistance) it's basically a 'P' and 'W' blended together to stand for Polska Walcząca (Poland fights). Thats as much as I can tell you other than I have one also that belonged to my father, if anyone has any better information I would be interested also

    Regards
    Jan

    Official name of the badge is ODZNAKA PAMIATKOWA ARMII KRAJOWEJ - Home Army Commemorative Badge.
    Steven, your badge is described as unverified/unknown regarding its authencity.
    I mean Marek Ney-Krwawicz who wrote a monography of this badge.
    Can you show back of the badge without a nut?
    Greetings
