    Here is a remarkable rarity — a British-made breast star of a knight commander of the Dutch Order of Willem (94x66mm, including the crown). With hallmarks and a date-letter for 1816. Since the order was only created in 1815, this would be one of the first awarded. Unfortunately, there is no information about the recipient, but must certainly have been a senior military officer or diplomat (the rolls show full generals receiving only the third class).
