  1. Hello, I totally understand your point. I am currently working with this provenance bacause it is possible to research it based on a history of other sets. Matikkala most probably off closed the other possible sets leaving behind only the set of Prince Henry. Because there are only 10 of them made, 3 unissued in Museums 1 unissued with provenance history to 1920s sold at Helander, the one awarded to Mannerheim and second for display purposes in Mannerheim museum. This leaves us only 4 of which 3 were awarded. I am not trying to drive up the price because I am not selling my piece.
  2. Sorry, I said wrong. Matikkala found out the provenance based on numbering of the stars and archive information.
  3. Antti Matikkala made a research about this particular piece based on silver stamps and archive information. Prince Henry of Prussia was actually never delivered the award. The cross stayed in storage of Tillander until it was probably sold out. Lets ask inversely: Where is the set of Prince Henry and is it even possible to prove that this is not an order belonged to him? -Christian Utti
  4. Hello, I can post a picture later but you can see mine example from Tiainen´s book Suomen kunniamerkit. It is pictured there. And just to make clear that I am not selling it. Only interested in its value. It is very hard to estimate it because of lack of public sales on this particular award. -Christian Utti
  5. Hello, I have the awarded one in mine collection. Belonged to Prince Henry of Prussia. It is the only awarded one in private collection. The set comes with box but unfortunately there is no document. The provenance was researched by Phd Antti Matikkala. How would you estimate the price of this award and an award without provenance? -Christian Utti
