KINGDOM OF DENMARK

15996 Order of the Dannebrog, [Dannebrog-Ordenen], 2nd model (since 1808), 8th edition (with cipher of Queen Margarethe II - since 1972), commander's cross, manufacturing of A. Michelsen in Copenhagen, silver gilt and enamelled, with its original neck ribbon, together with lapel rosette in its original, golden imprinted and slightly spotted case of Michelsen.

II 390,00 €
The Order of the Dannebrog was instituted on October 12, 1671 by King Christian V of Denmark and Norway (1646-1699, reigned since 1670) as a renewal of an order of chivalry already having been instituted in 1219 by King Waldemar II of Denmark (1170-1241, reigned since 1202). Originally consisting in one class only, King Frederik VI of Denmark and Norway (1768-1839, reigned since 1808) on June 28, 1808, enlarged it to a four class (Grand Commander - since 1842 the highest class -Knights Grand Cross, Commander and Knights) order for general merit. In 1864 the Commander-class, in 1952 the knight's class were devided into two grades. Already in 1808 the Decoration of the Order of the Dannebrog (silver cross) was established. In 1839, 1848, 1863, 1906, 1912, 1947 and 1972, after accession of a new sovereign, the design of the insignia was changed by adding the respective royal cypher above the cross.

[Comendador],
I-II 150,00 €
This is a “phantasy-edition”, as the grand cross breast star of 11th model (with “1870” in the centre ring), which was conferred from 1870 until 1951, was of silver colour and not of gold colour. Only with the 12th model (without “1870”), which was conferred from 1951 until 1962, the gold coloured grand cross breast star was introduced. Anyway a highly interesting piece of excellent markmanship.

The originally 4-class (Grand Cross, Commander of Number, Commander and Knight) order for general merit in rendering civil services to Spain, with affiliated silver cross, has been established by Royal decree of Alfons XIII (1886-1941, reigned since 1886 rwesp. 1902) of June 25, 1926, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 177 of June 26). The first reglamentos have been proclaimed with Royal decree no. 903/1927 of May 17, 1927, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 137 of the same day). With royal circular order no. 494/1927 of May 23, 1927, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 145 of May 25) the corrected reglamentos have been proclaimed again. With decree of the Ministry of State of July 24, 1931, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 208 of July 27) abolished all orders depending from this ministry (with exception of the Order of Isabella the Catholic), and therefore also the Order for Civil Merit. With decree of November 7, 1942 (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 315 of November 11) Francisco Franco y Bahamonde (1892-1975, reigned since 1936), head of the Spanish state, restored the order adding the classes "Ribbon" [Banda] for ladies, Officer [Oficial] and "Bow" [Lazo] for ladies. The new reglamento of the order was been proclaimed with decree of February 3, 1945 (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 41 of February 11), thus replacing the former royal crown on the insignia with the so called "imperial crown" of the catholic kings (2nd model). With decree of July 26, 1957, (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 205, of August 12), a collar class was introduced.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, today Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has been founded on July 29, 1890, after the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution had refused to accept women in their society. In the very first years the society was granted personal protection of the First Lady Caroline Lavinia Scott Harrison (1832-1892), wife of Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd President of the United States of America (1833-1902, President from 1889 until 1893). Requirements for application to the still existing philanthropic society are: female sex, a minimum age of 18 years and a provable direct descent from a soldier or another person of the Revolutionary period (1765-1783) who aided the cause of independence (“Nobility of the Revolution”).
