Rhodesia Legion of Merit Grand Commander breast star

Recommended Posts

This is another set of photo, of another breast Grand Officer of the Legion of Merit of Rhodesia, that I had the opportunity to buy long time ago....but on the last stage, there was a mess up..., and I actually only kept the photo.


Regards to all.

And here is the Legion of Merit of Rhodesia Grand Officer breast star in my collection.


As you can see, the Great Zimbabwe Bird in its center, is in silver-gilt, and not in gold.


Believe me the reverse bear no hallmarks, and looks different, with a screwplate, a bit german style.


I was said that , as it is not marked SPECIMEN, it was then an original star, but not issued...., but I doubt, as the bird, as I said is not in gold, and reverse is very different. However I don't paid much....


Regards to all.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
