Badge of the 1st Grenadier Division which fought in the French Campaign of 1940. Combat version with the visible wreath.
The badge was introduced in 1943 and awarded to the members of the 1st Grenadier Division. This example is of unknown production (most likely made in Poland in the 1970’s). The legitimation card was issued to Sergeant Koczkowski Jan in Warsaw 1970 which supports this theory. After the same soldier we have in our offer the 2nd Warsaw Division Badge ( https://sarmatia-antiques.com/product/ww2-polish-badge-2nd-warsaw-armoured-div-with-document/ )
The badge is a stylized crowned eagle sitting on a shield with the sentence inscribed in the circumference (God Honor the Fatherland – Bóg Honor Ojczyzna). In the lower part of the shield you can see the inscribed sign of grenadiers, a burning grenade with a number of initials (D 1 G). In the center of the shield, the Lorraine cross is visible, partially covering the eagle.
Condition as on photographs.
