I recently purchased this officer’s badge of the Order. I’m a bit puzzled about the rosette though… It is unlike any other I’ve seen for this order. The red bands are usually on just a few of the ribs and on opposite sides, not all around the interior. What are your thoughts, private maker? Older model? Standard rosette for a certain variant of a certain period?
