Hello friends

Is there someone who can help me with that piece of French history:

- to tell me from which period it comes from?

- to tell me which version it is?

- approx. value in that condition (for insurance reasons)

Many thanks :jumping:

Hello KDVR

A well made badge IIIrd Republic knight's badge as suggested by Great Dane. Silver and probably gold centers. Some chipping, but generally good condition.

They are easily found in France where they can be picked up for 15 to 25 Euro, sometimes even less. Extremely well made luxury badges in pristine condition, from some of the best Paris jewelers, will draw a better price.

They sell for more in other countries where they are less numereous.
