Attempting to restrain myself from posting everything from this past weekend's Traveling Museum get together. In a lovely red case with a big gold crown and a nifty little fitted door inside that opened to reveal the ribbon tucked inside was THIS--

A BrH2aX set (awarded as a set together) --Brunswick House Order of Henry The Lion-Commander 1st Class with Swords! A final reckoning will await Dave getting the promised Rolls and transcribing them, so let's just say... a Pour le Merite's ho hum by comparison.

Mind you, I find the painted peacock feathers just that over-the-top on whaat would otherwise be in the running for most beautiful Order eveer. Enjoy--glad it could be shared with you all.(Epson! Epson! Epson!)

The star was fitted in the case next to the neck badge.

More of a cross, obviously, than a star, but by Commander 1st Classes general system, will call it a star like other Orders had, to avoid any confusion about Officer class pinback crosses.

Well Rickeroo - if you have a feather problem... go with the Officer's Cross - pure elegance!

Rick,

Thank you for the nice comments. I had help from members of this forum to ID this bar, Dave Danner was the main person who gave me the history.
