I recently fulfilled a long term desire and bought an original KCVO (Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order) from a reputable dealer in the UK. When it arrived here in Australia, I was surprised at the size of the Star. It was smaller than I had expected. Does anyone else happen to have one or have access to the correct dimensions? 

One thought has crossed my mind - that I have received a ladies version (DCVO) which could explain the smaller size Star. Pictures I have seen of the Royals show Camilla (GCVO) wearing a narrower riband than the men.

Can anyone assist me?

Greg.

Thank you for clearing this up for me.. Mine is 73mm too so that means it is fine.

Well, I think we have dont look for a Chancellor of the Exchequer; we have to look for a Chancellor of the Royal Victorian Order.

It´s not the same, isnt it?
