Hi , nice piece but it is certainly NOT made in Ottoman Empire boundaries. I mean it is not made by Ottoman Mint.

Normally , you can not see this pin on the back of 1st Class Shevkat Orders , the most beautiful examples of 1st Class Shevkat orders , have gold wreath - chaplet on the back. The other's reverse is flat.

If you pay attention on the Tughra , you can see again a wrong - foreign made Tughra.

Usually , the Tughra printed on flat surface in 1st Class Ottoman Shefkats , this one printed on convex surface.

1st Class Shevkats sometimes seen with Neck Ribbon also , this has a beautiful Sash , it is a nice addition.

Generally , in my opinion I can say that it is a nice foreign made example. But I prefer Ottoman Mint Made Shevkats . If we woud be speaking about Medjidie Orders , I can say to you that Foreign made Medjidies such as Rothe , Halley , La Foyalle etc.. are very very beautiful and much more rare and expencive then Ottoman Made ones. But this is not admissible for Shevkat Orders.

All the Best ,

By the way , when I said there must not be a pin on the 1 st Class Shevkat's , I mean it musn't be on the order , of course the 1 st class Shevkat Breast Stars have pin on the back.

Below , I am pasting a photo of an 1 st Class Shevkat Order , perfect Ottoman Made - to compare.

Norok ,
