Bolivia.Orden al Mérito Civil del Libertador Simón Bolívar.

Recommended Posts

I always thought that this order looks as on a photo 1.

On this site http://www.ababolivia.org/60aniversario6.asp has found other image of this order(2).

Inscription - "Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores y Cultos".

But in document inscription- Orden al Mérito Civil del Libertador Simón Bolívar(3).

May be somebody knows?

A breast badge [on an incorrect {?} light green ribbon] with design of your 2nd image appeared on eBay about 3-4 years ago. Maybe offered by a member from Brazil or Chile?

Burke's World Orders of Knighthood & Merit, citing a Bolivian government source, describes the Order insignia with the first image design. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Religion administers the Order, according to that source. Perhaps that circumstance accounts for a possible design change and the inscription?
