Austria Merit Order Class ?


Recommended Posts

Hi, is there any knowledge about the Austria Merit Order out There ?

I found this Order but what class is it? I have only seen Merit order worn on band earlier

This one made by Souval Wienna


It's an Officer's breast Cross. Souval is also famous for the restriking of the Azad Hind Decorations.

Hi Christer,

your piece is original and having it in the original case (also with manufacturer's mark of Souval?) is a plus.

The Merit Order awarded from the government of the Austrian 1st Republic was made by Rothe; Reitterer and Souval.

During WW1, Souval was also the maker of the (original) Milit?rverdienstkreuz 1st Class.

Best wishes,
