    Bulgaria, Order of St. Alexander - exile version Simeon II.

    Recommended Posts

    hello gentlemen,


    I would like to show you a breast star as awarded by Simeon II in exile. Made by the jeweller Cejalvo in Madrid.

    The French import hallmarks suggest that it was awarded to France.

    I would be delighted if other collectors have other pieces from this period in their collections,

    and of course want to show them here.

    I would also be pleased to receive informations - also about possible sales in auctions.


    I am also asking for confirmation of the swan hallmark.

    My information is that this hallmark with the swan and the two lines was introduced by France in 1984 as a guarantee hallmark for 800/1000 silver.


    I look forward to receiving answers.


    With kind regards

    Uwe aka Bretzen

    • Bretzen changed the title to Bulgaria, Order of St. Alexander - exile version Simeon II.

    I think it's the first time I see a quality picture of this type of breast star. Thanks. 


    As for the swan hallmark, I would suggest you inquire in the French section of the forum (if you haven't already).
