I think this post would be better suited in Reproductions as this thread is supposed to show genuine badges of the Order of Michael the Brave.

Does anyone know who made this piece ? It is interesting in that the cross and crown appear to be genuine and the swords and suspension tab between the cross and crown have been added.

I think the cross is far from genuine since the 1941 model with the Mihai I cipher and the year 1941 on the obverse had a more elaborate reverse with both the Ferdinand cipher and the year 1916.

My observation of the cross was made based on the color of the enamel and the gold gilting. It is very good. And, by just looking at the photos, the cross and crown look genuine. However, the swords and suspension are rather crude with cast slag and sand marks. The gilting of the swords and suspension look different then the cross and crown. Brighter and more yellow in color. That is why I thought that it could have been a modified piece.

The crown looks indeed very well, but the design of the cross does not correspond to any known model of this order. The details you mentioned only prove how good was the person making it.

Close up of the cross. The cypher and the enameling is very good.

Some new Breast Stars are coming out of Bucharest. Using 3rd class orders of the Star with swords and applying it to a newly made silver star with the Resch stamps. Very good reproductions that are incorporating and marrying original orders to make them. Unless you have or have seen originals, these stars will fool most collectors.

Thanks for this piece of information. Do you have some images to illustrate the appearance of these modern reproductions?
