    Bulgaria Cyril and Methodius order collar document modern version

    Recommended Posts

    Order of Saints Cyril and Methodius


    Very rare award - modern version. Design is based on Royal version of award, however not as detailed.

    The Order of Saints Cyril and Methodius was reinstated on 29 May 2003 as the second order of the republic after the Order of Stara Planina and is awarded for merit in the fields of art, science, education and culture.

    There are three grades:

    1) Collar,

    2) 1st Class (Officer)

    3) 2nd Class (Knight)

    Only 15 awarded in Collar Grade, so extremely scarce award.

    Even rarer with the document!












    Case and tubus for the document

    Hi New World,

    What is the asking price?


    Yes It seems the interest for the new 'revived" Tzar's Awards is very low

    I personally would not be interested, although i have quite a few Communist Awards One has to draw a line of the scope of his/her collection.
