On the suspension ring , there is a hallmark with SILBER and CFZ (manufacturer).

CFZ is Zimmermann in Pforzheim-Germany

Very clear image. Thanks.

Is there anything else after "41"?

Is this a genuine badge? There are some differences from the badge posted a while ago by aviatiadasenzatia (see below), namely the crown and the ribbon suspension loop.

This one is a genuine commodore "Star of Romania" , model 2 , war type (with swords) . You can compare them.

How common/uncommon was the dark red velvet interior of the case?

No answers regarding the badge above? :(

I bring now to your attention another badge that appears to have some sort of (casting?) faults on the eagles on one side. Is it a genuine badge?

What do you think about the badge below? It shares some characteristics with the two badges above, but there are also some differences: thin motto ring, opaque green enamel on the wreath, wavy pattern on the obverse medallion, dotted pattern on the reverse medallion. This particular badge also seems to have some filling defects of the enamel on the obverse as well as some asymmetry and excess metal on the reverse arms of the cross.

Another badge with similar features (thin motto ring, opaque green enamel on the wreath, wavy pattern on the obverse medallion, dotted pattern on the reverse medallion), but with wrong ribbon (also from eBay)

In my opinion, both pieces posted by you are ok!
There are not made by the "standard" manufacturers like Resch,Weiss or MN !!!
I have saw a lot of such pieces.

Thanks b737. Do you happen to know who the manufacturer was?

Poor copy of the Order of the Star sold on eBay as a "perfect and rigorous reproduction in the smallest detail of the original" :blink:
