Order of the White Eagle, Type II, Military Division, Badge (provisional government, with swords)
Estimated market value:
This was originally a Polish Order, created by Augustus II, King of Poland in 1705.
This award was primarily conferred upon Polish nationals within Russia, but was later adopted as a Russian Order after the conclusion of the Polish rebellions in 1831, as a deliberate political act by Czar Nicholas I as a way to deprive the Polish ruling classes of power and decision-making capabilities.
The badge with swords are awarded to military personnel.
