As with most "Eastern European" National awards (Pre-Communist Gov. types, that is)....the problem now is that nearly all are being reinstituted and remanurfactured.....and many available for "resale" (either officially or illegally) so the problem is determining what vintage you're Polonia Restituta Medal is (& what class, actually).....and even with the older versions, whether it's Polish made or English-made (Gov. in Exile).
However, for $59.00Canada.....I'd expect it's a "new" version.....the Red Cross miniture is too subjective to venture a guess value-wise.....but probably not a bad deal if it's "good quality".
If it turns out your PR medal is an early Polish version you've gotten an excellent buy, if it's a modern version you're paying about the going rate.....I can't tell you what to look for, not an expert on Polish militaria, but quality and age are usually evident....the new stuff seldom is of the quality of the original......
Hope this helps alittle....
