Antti will know for sure!

Both may be Grand Cross cases.   Green perhaps Romanian Crown, Carol II issue, but those cases usually blue. Red case Star of Romania likely military with swords thru center.   Some say cases with that top lid stamp may be Michael but the RESCH inner lid stamp looks earlier.

I'd rather say that the second one is for the Order of Carol I judging by the shape of the inserts.

Carol I very likely correct----could I make a comment 'takes one to know one' without offense???

I've never seen that cypher/insignia on the outer lid of a Carol I case before, just on Star and Crown cases supplsedly from Michael period.   What is it exactly?.

It is Michael's cipher during WWII, or at least during its beginning.

 

And coming back to the cases, I have a hunch that the first one is for the Loyal Service Order.
