Hi gents,

It is possible to tell what class and type it is? The size is 52 x 91 mm (to the top of the ring, and 85.5 mm to the top of the cross), gilded.

Also, when it was manufactured?

Thank you in advance.

Alex

Thank you Paul!

May I ask, how do you distinguish between the third and second class if they are the same size? Or the size is different?

It is well preserved SS III produced by Swiss manufacturer Huguenin freres le Locle.

Basicaly, medallion is the same for the II and III class, minus the star.

Manufacturing period is most probably somewhere between 1921/1938.
