    Spanish orders and medals
  1. Mark, Bart thank for your words!! Today I want show you an other military merit. It is a Order Of military merit 2º class. It was realized by Gerardo Castells, a manufacturer from Barcelona You can see that the crown has been cut. It was a practice of the 2º republic (1931-1936), because the orders and medals didn´t had to show symbols about monarchy There are medals what have lost the crown and the ´´lises`` of the blue center and the four ´´lises`` that we can see next to the cross. But other owners thought that removed the crown was enough and the ´´lises`` there were something about the design of the order and no for the goverment. The owner had to decided buy a new medals or make this modification in her old medals. When the medal was of hight quatily, as for example this that is made with gold, silver and enamel, the price was important.
