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 V Class Member is similar in design to the IV Class Member but is composed of silver.
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". The inscription Imtiaz Haroonia translates to "Order of Haroonia".
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.
