There are also MVs made in gold (both model 1916 and model 1941). These were privately-made pieces but were authorised.

I have heard also about this legendary pieces but I have never seen one, or a document that certifies this. Do you have more information about this pieces?

A dealer once showed me one of these (it was a 3rd Class, model 1916). I don't know if it was original or fake.

The same dealer told me that there are more such pieces. He also said these were made by different jewellers, so there are differences between them.

I have seen diffrent things on the michael the brave 1916 class 3.

The crown is smaller on some pieces and in some cases the crown is bigger?

What is your answer?

QUOTE (Cuza @ Mar 28 2006, 07:30 PM)
Many Romanian ODM were manufactured in silver and gold, with and without diamonds, irrespective of the designation of the decree, and given on special occasions, to those close to the monarchy and to foreign heads of state.

This far I have only heard of an Order of Carol I with brilliants awarded to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire in 1907. What other Romanian orders were awarded with diamonds?

If the discussion will continue substantially on this direction I will split the thread.

Yes , you're right, there are differences at the crown-at all models!

It is a german book called "Die Orden Hermann Görings"-The orders from HG written by Ottfried Neubecker

Another interesting thing with this image is that the badge third class appears to be of the fourth variety you posted earlier but with a more detailed crown. Would this make it a fifth variety?

Another Order of Michael the Brave on a medal bar from the same seller who offers the badge above. The suspension crown looks somewhat similar to some used for the 1941 model of the order (see below). Does anyone know when did these crown types start to be used for this order?
