Special consideration the author pays to the jewelled pieces, but also the various cases are shown, as well as the manufacturers marks of the Ottoman and European producers. High attention is also paid to the forgeries of insignia of both orders, to the adulterations of original pieces with added forgeries of crossed sabres and to the forgeries of cases! Conclusion: A very constructive and comprehensive work, not only for collectors of Ottoman orders insignia, but also for everyone who is interested in the history of the Ottoman Empire!
