Help with Orangen-Nassau order

Berichtdoor tuba » 12 Dec 2008, 15:08

Hello.

I have in my possession an Orange-Nassau order in a grand cross Sash.. But I wonder if it really is a grand cross or what it is. The reason I'm wondering is that it is so small. The medal is only 65 * 40 mm in size. Shouldn't it be around 85 * 55 mm in size?

Welcome to the forum,

The diameter of a Knight Grand-Cross, Grand officer and Commander is 60 mm, the size of a Officer and Knight 46 mm and a Member 35 mm.

I would presume that this size is correct!

Do you know how much it is worth? I believe its from the earlier part of the 20th century (I purchased it together with one medal from 1908 and one medal from 1948). It has a small enamel damage on one of the cross arms othewise its in perfect condition. I haven't found any hallmarks.

the grandcross sashbadge and the commander neckbadge have the same size; 60 mm width and 85 mm height incl. the crown. The size for an officer is about 40 mm width and about 65 mm height incl. crown, so in my opinion it is an officer's cross.

I also believe that it is an Officer cross in a grand cross sash..
