    Legion Of Merit- Chief Commander Star.


    Recommended Posts

      I have add this LOM - Chief Commander in my collection.
      After my research, I belive is made in the 60s to the 70s by IRA Green.
      Please, correct me if I am wrong.
      Because the LOM star look worn,I would like to know who may have borne it.
      Can anyone tell me how many have been awarded and if a holder list exist for the period 60s-70s.
      Every comment is welcome.
      Regards, Jannis.

    Is was really a beautiful award.

    Hi Jannis, here's my LOM I have in my collection. Its the Legionnaire version I believe. Has split loop suspender brooch and a makers mark for Williams & Anderson. A diamond with a zig zag or lightning bolt?

    I would date this a post war, possibly 1950's to early sixties?

    Very nice LOM and I think is rare,I have never seen one with this maker mark.
    I have received my LOM today,in natura is an impressive piece.
    The overall width is 2 15⁄16 inches (75 mm) and has an weight of 93.4 gramms  
    Has unfortunately not any maker marks.
    Regards, Jannis.
