NO, I don't have photos.I tryed to find but I am still looking.

Those are cufflinks for the jacket (sacou) and the pin is for the tye (cravata).

I have been directed by an enthusiast to a document written by Nicolae De Stroe through the Asociatiei Germano-Romane. Apparently, the document states that this is a medal of bravery. I have not yet found it.

Also, I emailed mark@marksmedals and this was his reply. "This is a piece of costume jewelry produced by the Coro company in the
1920's. There are collectors out there who collect Coro jewelry and I see
them sell regularly for around $15 on Ebay"

Does anyone have any opinion of this?

This explains the "Coro" on your badge, doesn't it?

I have found some information on the Coro company. It appears that the badges were pieces of costume jewellery, not official insignia of the Order of the Crown.

It was given to the grand officers from the romanian army to wear this , when they where invited at partyes, or to wear them when they where in active duty.

Given by whom?

:blink: I don't get it. Did I misread something in the website for the CORO Company ? It sounded like they operated in the USA and Canada. The West. Started using the stamp CORO in 1942. I don't think that they would have been making patriotic jewelry for the other side in 1942. I think that would have been called back then aiding and abetting the enemy. Today, we embrace it and call it liberalism and an alternative view point. It sounds to me like these pieces were made post WW2 as patriotic jewelry for members in exile.

I think this is what they are. Nothing official.

Another badge from the American Coro company with the eagle and the motto "PRIN NOI INSINE * 14 MARTIE 1881" auctioned on the net (the manufacturing quality of this piece seems rather poor)
