    Hello Alex and welcome to the forum!

    The government issue Cross of Merit for Bravery was numbered. Non-numbered ‘replacement’ crosses were available for recipients who preferred to keep their issue crosses stored away for safekeeping.

    Pictured below is an original cross with award document that was sold in a past internet auction. The ribbon is a standard Cross of Merit with the diagonal blue and green band.

    Between 1928 when the award was established until the invasion of Poland in 1939 only 403 crosses were awarded, making it one of the rarest 2nd Republic decorations. The cross was issued in a single (silver) grade only.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Hi Green, Thanks, but unfortunately not mine. This set was auctioned off in April 2010 and fetched an impressive 6,457zl ($2060 US). A testament to its rarity.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    That's too bad, Tony, that it's not yours! It shows well and yes, quite rare. $2000 does not fall from trees either
