  1. The order seem good to me . But I do not like the medal bar for original ! But if order is good and price is right ? maybe you can find an original ribbon ? Knights 1st class of OZL very cool medal !
  2. I do not like the way the ribbons are sewn together ! The lion order looks ok to me ? But I’m no expert ! I have owned a few original 2nd class knight pieces and I know they finely made . Are there repos of this award being made now ? Is it finely made ? The castle in the center does not seem to me like it should ? flash Washing ? Can you get better pics of the enamel work ?
  3. Devote Mormon ,Eagle scout And war hero .
