Default Unknown Eagle Badges

I really could use some help with these. The one with the cross has an Italian look about the design whilst other a Polish one.

Any information would be helpful.

Thank you

The first one could be Spanish, I have a button with a similar design of a cross on an eagle.

Other one described as :

WW1 Polish Eagle Cap Badge of a society from USA

Quote:
Eagle of Polish organizations in the USA, depicted in the form of an eagle with wings spread upwards, head turned to the right wing. Eagle sitting on two crossed sabers. Reverse of the eagle stamped with a die.

A similar item is found in Tomasz Zawistowski’s book Polskie Or?y do Czapek w latach 1917-1919? on page 92, item 166.

Yes the first one is Spanish, for berets (caps wore a smaller one, and visor caps an embroidered eagle) Used from 1975 (when Juan Carlos I became King) to 1981 (in that year metallic beret badges changed to cloth patches)

Hi, just to confirm what the others have said about the Spanish one, I agree with these posts. Also, if you Google: vintage Spanish military buckle, you will see the emblem from this badge on these buckles. Many thanks and best regards.
