Order of the Holy Sepulchre

its modern maybe 1980s? No enamel on reverse, might be from the US Lieutenancy or region of the order. With no sash I’d say not more than $200 but certainly a nice looking piece. The quality of manufacturing is diminished in the more modern pieces so if you can examine it do so

I agree wit Sal. Modern item. Also I am not convinced that it is a Grand Cross More likely Commander

Just explore this Dealer site, including the Sold items as well and you can make  your mind

Agree with Sal & Graf, as usual!  Grand Cross badge should measure in the 55-59 mm by 105-115 mm range.  Workmanship/appearance of this example suggests Stange, St. Louis, Mo, U.S.A. origin [thick, non-tapered or striated 'loop' for ribbon [cravat] attachment, very thin connecting rings between cross and trophy of arms, plus trophy of arms rather 'flat' appearance].  Would guess 2000's manufacture.  Similar neck badges offered at about US$200 sometimes including case & ribbon on e*ay.

    • 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.
