Bulgarian Order for Bravery 1st class - super rare!

Recommended Posts

Rarest of the rare - cross of Order for Bravery 1st class, 1915 version. No star.

See comparison to 2nd class cross in 2nd photo, 1st class is on the right and noticeably larger.  

Some people are so lucky to have these extra rare awards in their collection...
