What do you think about this badge of the Order of the Star? Does it look as if it has a modern cross, a 1930s-40s central medallion and a Krétly(?) crown?

You have right, the cross is new, the central medallion and the crown are old!!!!
Compare it with the following picture from a new breaststar (great officer).

From what I can see it is the Comandor class from the time of Carol I.

Maybe the crown is from that period, but the rest is definitely not.

Most likely manufactured by C.F. Zimmermann of Pforzheim.
