Hallo Carol I, :D

These copies of the Romanian Order of the Star, are being sold by an Italian dealer on ebay I believe, in his auction he has also a Bavarian MVO Cross, I think they come from the Godet series of World medals that were quite collectable a few years ago, when originaly made and were clearly advertised as copies and came with a numbered certificate.
This guy is very loose with his descriptions and best avoided.

Kevin in Deva :D

This Order of the Star is for sale on www.okazii.ro. It's quite a strange one, look at the ataching ring between the medal and the swords I didn't sow something like that at this Order, and an other thing that is strang the space between the eagles.
What do you say???

Maybe a little off-topic, but it has to be said:

In my opinion, some military award sellers on okazii.ro are just plain nuts! Their prices are outrageous, how can they think people would buy their items?

I'm speaking of the several examples listed of the WWII model Star of Romania in knight or officer classes.

Their starting bid prices range from 145 Euros (the only price even remotely reasonable), all the way to 1800 RON - that's for a knight class award!

No wonder there are no bids for any of them...

As far as I know most of the expensive ones are part of a large group belonging to a Michael th Brave winner, general Dumitriu Ion. The seller doesn't really wants to break the group so he puts those high prices just for that.

If that's the case, then it makes sense.
I've seen the Dumitriu grouping on a different thread, and it is indeed a very nice group of awards.

Thanks for clarifying, Boonicootza.

Here is an other Order of the Star for sale on Okazii.

But there is something strange about it, the heads of the eagles aren't the same size and there are some mistakes at the eagles wings. Is it the same like the others posted in this tread. I think it's originall but I need a second opinion.

Here are 2 orders from okaii.ro, they are quite strange, because the orders are original and the crown and the ribbon I think are fake or from an other order, What do you think??? I need some opinions.

Thanks for the reply. I also think they are replacemnet made after 1990 but the only thinghs that I think are replaced are the crown and ribbon on bouth orders, because you can see the color of the crown don't mach the color of the order. So do you think that the orders could be ww2 and the crown and ribbon post 1990???

No! There are complete made after 1990 ! The pictures are not so clear,so you can't see the difference between an old one and a replacement piece.
I had also such pieces in my collection. I kept only the Michael the Brave replacement.
