Besides uniforms and flags, there are some orders and decoration pages:

Yes, it includes all kind of graphics!

Order of the Crown of Romania:

as printed on a piece of woven silk which was given away free with packets of W. D. & H. O. Wills' Australian brands of "Three Castles" and "Vice Regal" cigarettes.

This particular series, consisting of 66 silks, was issued in 1916 and was entitled "War Medals".

Some cigarette pack additions from the 20's


There is just one more cigarette card of interest from this set:

(IMG:http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/584/barbmedalmi4.jpg)
(IMG:http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/584/barbmedalmi4.d0e8e5110c.jpg)

There were 90 cards in the set which was entitled "War Decorations & Medals". It was issued in 1927 by John Player & Sons, part of the Imperial Tobacco Co. of Great britain & Ireland Ltd.. The card numbers of the Romanian decorations included in the set were as follows:
63 - Order of Michael the Brave;
64 - Order of the Star of Romania;
65 - Order of the Crown of Romania;
66 - 1916-18 War Cross;
67 - Victory medal;
68 - Barbatie si Credinta medal.

Note that the graphic artist has omitted from the Order of the Star the blue enamel ring with the motto In Fide Salus. Also the War Cross has been shown with the reverse of the medal.

Even so, they are a very attractive set of cards.

I have just seen that all 6 of the Player's cigarette cards showing Romanian decorations are being offered for sale on ebay by a seller in the USA.

Item number is 260277630524, end time is 28 Aug., 09-58-14 BST.

That's a spooky coincidence!

The cards were sold to a buyer in Romania.

Was it anyone from this Forum?

From the centre 2 pages of "Le Petit Journal, Supplement Illustre" of 17 September 1916 comes this large (62 cm by 45 cm) illustration.

In the lower left corner of the illustration is a graphic depicting the Star of Romania (type I), the Military Virtue medal (model 1880) and the Crown od Romania (type I).

On the 23 December 1994 Posta Romana issued a philatelic mini-sheet of 4 stamps to commemorate Romanian Military Decorations of 1866-1945.

A first day cover was also issued which had a graphic of the Order of Michael the Brave, class III, 1916, depicted on it. The envelope measures 19.6 cm by 12.4 cm..
