Republican Civil Merit Star, Godet

Never seen one before, presumably produced 1944-46, of much batter quality than the usual pieces from the period

These were produced earlier, when King Boris was alive, likely in late 1930s to early 1940s.

Then these awards were converted locally in Bulgaria into Republican version post Sep 1944, existing stock of awards was used.

Hi Igor,

Congrats for the Group if you managed to get it

The mark Silber is not strong indication for Godet Most of the Bulgarian Stars were made by the German  Firm Zimmermann

As the New World stated the Star was made during the King Boris III period and later was converted to a republican Model by altering the central medallion to comply with the new rules

 

Here is the same Star before being converted
