Is the hallmark a romanian hallmark????Is there a specification that it is a romanian silver mark?It could be the manufacturers mark!

You are right. I didn't think of that.

How common were these badges? Were they officially or privately manufactured? As far as I know, the regulations specified that the holder should wear both wartime and peacetime awards (hence no reference to "composite" badges).

One more example of a "composite badge" of the Order of the Star of Romania

No replies this far. :( Well, here are some of my thoughts. The manufacture quality of these badges appears to be rather high suggesting a jeweller's workshop not an improvised manufacture. Furthermore, the badges appear to have similarities in the details indicating the same workshop.

If these pieces were not official issues, what are the odds that not one but three military persons had the initiative to combine their peacetime and wartime awards into one badge and made their insignia in one and the same workshop? On the other hand, if they were official issues, has anyone seen a reliable confirmation of their existence? Of course, there is also the possibility that the pieces were later (recently?) assembled, making them only fantasy badges. But is this likely or not?

Thanks Cuza. I must read Klietmann more often.

I don't think the appropriate word is "variation" . Actually that model is the first model of the "Steaua Romaniei" . More precisely Knight - military -war - time issued. The color of the metal is not clear , if is gilted then it should be Officer not Knight but the ribbon is for knight.
