    Fascinating miniature medal, No One.


    I’m going to display my ignorance of medals here, but I am surprised to see the rosette on the miniature medal ribbon and ribbon for the ribbon bar. I understand the lapel rosette, indicating receipt of the medal, but would not expect to see the rosette on the ribbons because the miniature medal and ribbon bar ribbon themselves indicate receipt of the medal.


    I have so much to learn.


    All the best,

    Dear TracA,


    Thanks for the interest.


    I was as surprised as you are, puzzled, and intrigued by those rosettes. And I don't have the answers.


    The ones that are currently being sold are identical to mine.

    What is more intriguing and perplexing is that the medals do not have a rosette.

    But it's not only this medal, others do have a rosette on their miniature:

    Sometimes a minature of a lower class of an order is worn to indicate possession of a higher class of that order. Not sure if this was done in Sarawak, it's more of a European thing; and I'm not really into minatures anyway. The ribbon can be decorated with a rosette or other insignia to indicate this.


    Use of a rosette and 'wings' are also commonplace on a ribbon bar to indicate the class of the order held.


    A rosette and silver 'wings' as shown here conventionally represents a holder of the Commander or Third Class of a typical 5-class order.

    Thank you for the information. It is very helpful. Funny, but before I came back to this post I was thinking to myself "I hope Megan weighs in".


    All the best,
