    Order of Merit of the Prussian Crown sold in Sweden today

    Recommended Posts

    The Order of Merit of the Prussian Crown that was awarded to Swedish prime minister Arvid Lindman was sold today in auction for 370 000 SEK which is about 36 000 € plus 22,5% commission.

    Apparently only 57 ever awarded!

    See the beautiful pictures here:

    Strange, I don't get any warning and it's a well known auction house. 

    You may try to go the long way and go to www.probusauktioner.se and click on "catalogue 35...." in the top right
    and then "samtliga utrop" and the orders are on page 10.

    Hi VtwinVince,

    I apologize for this late acknowledgment, but have been experiencing problems posting - let's hope that this works.

    Obviously, the piece that I posted is a Merit Order of the Prussian Crown, Kleindekoration. I can only tell you  that it is silver gilt (not gold which is not a problem) and came from the collection of Mr. Carsten Klingbeil. Further, it is illustrated in  Thies/Kiligbeil Band 3,, located at seite 46,  #1494.

    Below (I hope) is a view of the reverse.
