Title Order of Merit for Catholics, 3rd Class
Nationality Croatian
Period 1942
Sold

This order was awarded to Catholic civilians and high ranking officials. It is a Croatian Fascist Party (Ustaschi) award (hence the raised 'U' in the centre), rarely seen on the market as at the end of the war anyone wearing this sort of thing would have rapidly dumped it!

The ribbon would have been red and white in a triangular format, but this is no longer extant.

There is some enamel damage to the reverse of the cross. However, it has not been re-enamelled or restored in any way; it is just that the surface has split slightly and the silver beneath the damage has tarnished, giving a blotchy image.

Collected bayonet this morning, all safe & sound as described. Been looking for one as good as this for years. Thank you.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
