Order of the Star of Karageorge

Recommended Posts

Let's say typical Bertrand pieces look just like that one on emedals and typical Scheid pieces look like the other one from my previous posts.
I've seen that Scheid's order in Car/Muhić book and to honest that's a bit of a puzzle to me. It looks just like Bertrand made order and even the authors state so. If I'm not mistaken there's a hallmark on its suspension ring, perhaps that's how they determined the producer. Anyway that particular example is very unusual for Scheid.
One more thing, generally speaking Scheid's pieces are hallmarked while Bertrand's aren't.

Any ideas of this particular piece?

It looks like AB (appearance and dimensions) but there are fee issues (e.g. crown enamel on both sides, strange color pattern, and wrong ring piece on reverse side)

The rest of the order looks ok, but I am not 100% sure. I don't have better pictures, but seems to be hallmark under the crown, which should be the French mark for silver.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
