Hi

It's probably 3 rd type of of commemorative badge of the 2 nd Cavalry Regiment called ,,Rokitniański", in my opinion it's copy.

The polish badge was in this lot with majority of romanian badges for cavalry.

The fanion is also polish from 1937 military horse contest held in Warsaw (is graved on the back).

 All the rest of the items proved to be original...

about the polish badge i don't know much

Now it looks much better :-) , 
I think I hastily thought it was a copy. 
Maybe it is the so-called duplicate - silvered not
silver, ordered by the owner in case the original
is lost?

most likely the lot belonged to a romanian officer.

i don't belive that he ordered another polish badge if he lots it.

this badges was made just in silver?

if the badge is ok what value can have?

thanks

Price hmm circa 1000-1500 EU  of course if it is original badge. maybe he got it as a gift from some officer of this regiment?

He did not necessarilly order of the badge himself. Often regiment officers did this, keeping the original in the collection or to the gala uniforms, for fear of destroing the badge...

Probably it was made generally in silver..

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
