anyone recognize this? no more issue nowadays as current SPDK is shown below
I have no idea of the name of these orders, but I made it in the early 1980s. Perhaps someone can identify them?
The first is the Order of the Crown of Pahang. Not sure about the other one.
The second is The Most Exalted Family Order of Trengganu.
Thanks for the info folks, back in the 1960s I also made the Malysian orders we knew as AMN,JMN and SMN, all the same design but of differing sizes, I was not into photography back then but I found this photo of the order online.
More beautiful images - and wonderful to hear from you again, James.
Here's an image of our craftsman working on the crest for the Seri Paduka Mahkota Johor (Order of the Crown of Johor) and a video chronicling the making of the Order. The crafting of ODM is such a fascinating process and we thought it'll be interesting to share a peek behind the scenes.

A great video, it reminded me of my youth making insignia. Although that was before the computer age so our dies were hand cut, but the bench work was the same, a lot of saw piercing and filing.
I found this old silver AMN badge pressing in my scrap box.

Amazing stuff... always fascinating to hear and see how things actually are made.
Thanks for the kind words, James. We are a huge fan of your objet d'art. Among my favourite is the Flax Flower Egg that you crafted for Kutchinsky. Exquisite. We have your book sitting in our library.
Our late master craftsman use to create all our dies by hand too, but such skills are difficult to pass down from generation to generation. The CNC machine is a good substitute but our craftsman still have to touch up the dies by hand to capture all the intricate details.
