  1. Yep, congrats I think the best I've ever seen, I want one (or maybe2,3---4 etc)😀
  2. I think it's generally taken to mean a fake, (Wring one's hands in anguish for buying a dud/clunker/lemon etc) The piece may be one of the very latest (And good) generation of fakes doing the rounds I could of course be completely wrong regards
  3. Hi, thanks for the comments, it's difficult to see from the image but the royal officers cross is heavily vaulted, but the republican version is even MORE vaulted! Regards, alex
  4. Hi all, just a long overdue update on this thread, since I posted the examples of the Knights classes, I've added, the following to my collection, A nice Royal officers cross, a Royal 3rd class Commanders cross, and just for fun, spotted an Republic officers cross. The Commanders cross has the same "BG" mark in exactly the same place as the Knight's cross I originally posted, still don't know what it means, though. The republic officer's is very "Blingy" in comparison but has some amazing enamel work Attached updated images regards

    Hi all, just a quick question, is the attached a "Current" version? described as IV class but I think it's V class, if so any idea of value? regards Alex K
  14. Apparently (From another forum) they were used primarily on medal bars as the reduced size fitted in with the size of other medals better, they were private purchase items regards
  15. Don't know to be fair, perhaps others may know, it certainly looks the part and was advertised as a Prinzen, maybe they came in a "Reduced size" regards
