Montenegro - Danilo Order crowned monogram

Recommended Posts

Hello, I?m Miguel Agreda From Spain, a newcomer in this forum.

I?m interested in balkan orders and medals. I have just bought a danilo order, and the cyrilic monogram "DI", is uncrowned. Somebody can explain me why or if this a know variant???

Hello Miguel

maybe you have seen already other items also without crown on my own website and on our Yahoo Group (by the way your email is not working on yahoo)

This is a variant and has no special significance. Almost all items that I have seen without crown are Franch production. You item is most probably Lemaitre. Lemaitre's items are ALL without crown. There are also few Russian made orders which also have no crown.

IMHO are Lemaitres pieces the most beautifully made Danilos.

Best regards and hope to see you back to the group :off topic:

Thanks Milan, I?d long time want to own a danilo order. I?ve got a danilo merit cross (Very beautiful, probably austrian of manufacture), but this one has been ever difficult and expensive. I?d bough this one to radman...last Chistmas (my Xmas give)

May I ask for the country to which this order pertains as I am not familiar with it?

It usually helps to know what the order is and where its coming from ;) before watching the big guns get caught up in variations and manufacture :rolleyes: Like that I can also slightly tweak the title to reflect region and order.

THE PRODUCER OF THIS DANILO ORDER IV CLASS IS "CHOBILLON". VERY SIMILAR TO "LEMAITRE" IV class.....

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
