My thanks to E. Halleux for pointing me to Tony McClenaghan's book, "Indian Princely Medals", which lists this as the Shaktimat Order of Jhalavada, first class breast star, from the Indian state of Dhrangadhra.

My thanks to E. Halleux for pointing me to Tony McClenaghan's book, "Indian Princely Medals", which lists this as the Shaktimat Order of Jhalavada, first class breast star, from the Indian state of Dhrangadhra.

I believe that the breast star pictured above is the second class.

The first class is in gold, and the centre of the circular medallion is is not enamelled, instead it has plain straight gold rays radiating outward like a sun-burst.

This from a booklet that the late Maharaja sent me about three years before he died.

Cheers,

James Hoard
