Really beautiful pieces! Is that pin in the box some kind of Karadjordje star receiver's pin? Haven't seen pins like that before...

Emanuel thanks for pics, you have a beautiful collection!

Pozdrav Pajo druze moj biggrin.gif

Thank you for your good words.

Despite the fact that you have a broken Star here, it's still very rare, Arthus Bertrand Mark maker Karageorge IV class.

You had to see this version you got without crown above 2 head Eagles in Mint condition, astonishing....

Nevertheless,family item as you said and you are proud I am sure about it as you had to be a real fighter, even among Officers to get it...

I like it a lot.

Cheers Paja beer.gif

Karageorge star with swords II class total 18 Serbs 4

Karageorge star with swords III class total 198 Serbs 118

Karageorge star with swords IV class total 1317 Serbs 1146

Karageorge star with swords in gold total 1111 Serbs 1074

Karageorge star with swords in silver total 2285 Serbs 1449

Cheers

Not my collecting area but I picked up this nice 1914-1916 Silver class Karageorge award from Dublin yesterday.

Does anyone can determinate the maker?

No need to comment. I needed quickly some funding and I sticked this cross up on sale. Because from where I got it, I am sure it was awarded to someone from any local Irish regiments, who fought in Balkans, but unfortunately I can't confirm it and I just can't keep everything, what I have and do not fit with my current collecting interest.
