Royal American Order of Isabella the Catholic was the title given at its inception by Fernando VII in 1815 and was originally awarded for exceptional services in pursuit of territories in the Americas and overseas. In 1847 it was reorganised by Isabella II and retitled the Royal Order of Isabella the Catholic and was given a much broader focus than the Americas taking into account the current political situation and the virtual extinction of colonies in the Americas.

I hope this is of help.

Thanks for your reply JohnF, it brings a much needed air of humour to the forum. Regards Brian  
    • I've been going through and rediscovering pieces in my collection.  I have also been helping my kids put together Legos.  This is the latest set.

    • Excellent Brian. A couple from the net:
    • I started to collect when I was a young boy when I was shown army cap badges from my grandfather who served in the second world war in the home guard. I brought a few cap badges from markets and shops, but then just went away from it as had too many other distractions as a lad.
