Cuba Orden Of Merito Vial

Recommended Posts

This order was created the 11st  May 1956 by General Fulgencio Batista in order to reward the Cuban citizen who promoted the development of the infrastructures of the country and the road network of Cuba.

 

This order was only given until December 1958.

 

The order had 5 grades;

 

  1. Gran Cross,

  2. Gran official,

  3. Commander,

  4. Official ,

  5. Knight badge.

 

This order is very rare due to the small period of attribution.  The order was made by Antigua Vilardebo y Riera in Habana.

so basically it existed for only 18 months? That’s a beautiful award. Any chance you can do an article on it for the JOMSA?

Hello Gentlemen, 

To contribute, here is what looks alike the Grand Cross breast star of the Merito Vial.

The breast star is 85x73 Millimeters.

On reverse there is a single pin, no side hooks.

Regards.

Dear Ulsterman, 

The orden was given from May 1956 until December 1958. Please note that Fulgencio Batista gouvernement loose the control of a big part of the island in June 1958 and I am not really sure that this order was awarded after June 1958 due to the political situation of the Island. 

Best regards,
