Spanish Awards

36 posts in this topic

My latest Spanish replacement award........a "Verdienstorden vom Deutschen Adler funfte stufe" (German Order of the Eagle 5th class)...... I would hazard a guess at 1970-80's production.
These awards are difficult to obtain/find, luck would have it that the vendor thought it a fake of a TR version......so to find it in the U.K. and pay £18 for it was rare in its self ! the seller even sent me a gift because he thought I had paid to much !

Here I want show you an order of military merit, 4th class (Grand Cross).

It was made by Juan Medina, manufacturers of medals that began her activity about 1850 in Barcelona. After, he opened shop in Madrid too.

This order  is period Alfonso XII

There are orders, that on the back we can see a  stamp manufacturer. With it, it´s possible date the piece.

Mark, Bart thank for your words!! :thumbup:

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.
