    The Order of the White Rose of Finland with swords

    Recommended Posts

    I've never seen one for sale, but I'd love to! 

    Only 107 White Rose orders with swords have been awarded since 1919, so they are extremely rare. Your best bet would probably be trying to find one in Germany, because the majority of recipients were foreigners who received the order in WW2. Only a handful of Finns got one. Most of them were generals who received the commander's cross for service in WW2 and were not eligible for a higher class of the Order of the Cross of Liberty. Probably the best known lower ranking officer to get one was the fighter ace Jorma Sarvanto, who received his knight's cross with swords in 1945. He already had the VR2, and he lacked the rank for VR1, so he received the White Rose order instead.
