Order of Agricultural Merit, Type II, Grand Officer's Breast Star
Estimated market value:
The Order of Agricultural Merit was established by King Carol II in 1932 but was suppressed in 1947 after the abolition of the Romanian monarchy. It was reinstated in 2000 following the collapse of the communist regime and is currently conferred upon Romanian citizens and foreigners in recognition of meritorious service in the field of agriculture.
There was a limit of 50 members in the Grand Officer grade from 1932-1947, and there is a current limit of 200 members.
There are three versions of the Grand Officer Breast Star. The first features the monogram of King Carol II, the second features the monogram of King Mihai I, and the third features the national crest of Romania.
There may be additional versions of the Grand Officer Breast Star that differ in size and composition due to a variety of manufacturers.
The other version is listed in the Orders of Romania (1990-). See also the Medal of Agricultural Merit (ROM144) in the Medals & Decorations of the Kingdom of Romania (1881-1947) and Romania (1990-) for the medal that was created alongside this Order.
