Estimated market value:
The Order of Oman (Wisam Al-Oman) was instituted following Sultan Qaboo's accession to the throne on July 23, 1970. The Order was originally conferred in 5 Classes to both civil and military personnel, however, the Order was amended in 1982 and the Honourable Order of Oman (Wisam Al-Sharif Al-Oman) was added as a Special Class.
The Honourable Order of Oman was created for Sultan Qaboo's visit to the United Kingdom. It is uncertain if the Special Class is currently awarded.
The Special Class Badge is worn from a Sash and is issued with a Collar and Breast Star.
The Badge features an Arabic inscription on the obverse which translates to "His Majesty Qaboos bin Said Sultan of Oman, 1403. If You Are Determined and God is with You, Nothing Can Stop You. The Most Honourable Order of Oman."
It is uncertain if there are multiple versions of the Special Class to distinguish civil and military awards. More research is necessary.
