Hey, the badges do seem like polish regimental badges, are there any markings on the rear side?

Regards

First is very similar to Imperial Germany but lacking the scroll on the crown, the Third is Prussia

The rear side is blank. I guess that all three are Polish, but are not sure.

First one and last one have the screwback. The middle has "rings".

The second might be polish but the other two most certainly are not

I am almost certain the middle one is part of a chain/collar used by judges in Poland. In this case, the eagle hasn't got any crown, so it means it's from the communist era.

See below a similar chain used today.

The first and third seem more likely to be russian as the ord and spectre have historically been a part of russian coats of arms

Thanks for all the comments! I am impressed by the expertise!:thumbup:
Polish eagle has great variety. As the picture.
A question (Hashim.A.Khan): is not the Russian eagle "Double-headed"?

I agree, the russian eagle has traditionally been double headed but the orb and spectre are two of the most prominent things seen in the russian coats of arms. These badges definitively have similarities with the russian badges though, however you do have a good point that i noticed myself

May not apply to this one.. but Polish eagle without Crown is generally Communist era. The fact these all look of similar manufacture may (may!) indicate that they were made as a representation of Polish insignia across a time frame. Rather than issued items.
