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.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.

The bayonet arrived yesterday in good order. Fits my musket perfectly. Quite pleased, and many thanks for a very satisfactory transaction.
