Andrew unusual star

Recommended Posts

Hello All.


After having been presented with a White Eagle Star yesterday we could go a few classes up and have a look at an Andrew.


It's nicely made, 50 mm across, appears unmarked and have a strange fastening system that resembles the hooks found on the Austrian Red Cross 1864-1914 officers cross.


So apart from the usual suspicion on beeing tourist souvenir etc this confuses me a little, is it an privately made (of course) princely size star, very large miniature, or something else like a uniform part or .... just a tourist souvenir? But it seems too good to be an tourist souvenir, if a fake, why choose such an odd size and why choose this odd fastening system?


Any thoughts or comments?
