Order of Haroonia (Imtiaz-I-Haroonia), I Class Grand Commander Breast Star
Estimated market value:
The Order of Haroonia (Imtiaz-I-Haroonia) was founded by Nawab Muhammad Bahawal Khan V Abbasi on the attainment of his majority and investiture with full ruling powers on November 12, 1903. The Order is conferred in 5 Classes.
The I Class Grand Commander Breast Star is worn with a Sash badge. There has been considerable disputes regarding the colour of the ribbon for the order. Some sources state grey, while others refer to various shades of green. The time periods for the first type of ribbon is also up for debate, as some sources state 1925-1935 (supposedly aligning with the Silver Jubilee in London) and others argue 1925-1953 (supposedly aligning with the cornation in London). Neither have been confirmed.
The obverse inscription is in Persian and states "1321 Hijri Khan Abbasi Jaloos Maimanat Manoos". 1321 Hejira means 1903/04 A.D; Jaloos means accession to a throne; Manoos means Associated/intimate/friendly, and so the inscription translates to roughly: "Friendly Medal on Accession".
There may be an additional version of the Decoration which differs by the obverse inscription or design. However, additional research is necessary to confirm.
There is limited information regarding this item.
